Medical report still out on baby’s death

CLARION COUNTY, Pa. — Authorities are awaiting a medical examiner’s report in their  investigation into the death of a 9-month-old baby boy from Geneva, said Mark Aaron, district attorney for Clarion County, Pa.

Pennsylvania State Police at Marienville first reported Zeke Hamilton suffered serious injuries to his chest, limbs and head sometime between 7 and 11 a.m. Aug. 31 at a seasonal residence in Washington Township, Pa., according to police reports.

The incident was listed as an “aggravated assault” on Labor Day weekend, according to Pennsylvania State Police reports.

The infant was taken to a nearby hospital by a family member and then by ambulance to Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh, where he remained in critical condition, a family member has said. Zeke was moved to a Hospice unit, shortly before he died on Nov. 15.

According to a family member, the infant’s parents, Daniel Hamilton Jr. and Jennifer Hemminger, both of Geneva, entrusted their three children, including Zeke, who was the youngest, to go on an overnight camp-out with a family member and a friend Labor Day weekend.

The family member and friend took the children to Washington Township, Pa., while the children’s parents remained in Ashtabula County.

When baby’s grandfather went to retrieve the children, he found the infant unresponsive in his car seat, a family member said.

The infant was taken to a hospital and the police were called in to investigate.

So far, no arrests have been made in the case and state police will not comment, only to say it’s under investigation.
