(La Porte County, IN) - A man described as a person of interest in the death of a young child in La Porte County is still incarcerated.
28-year old Alan Morgan remained in the La Porte County Jail while investigators continued to investigate the death. Criminal charges have not been filed yet in the case.
According to La Porte County Police, officers were called at about 3 AM on Monday to a home in the 3100 block of East 875 South near Kingsford Heights. Officers went inside and found the child deceased. No light has been shed yet on the cause of death.
Jenna Hullett told WSBT TV out of South Bend, she and Morgan are cousins, and the child lived with her and her family for about four years. More recently, though, Hullett said they had to give the child back to Morgan.
“I was hoping that we would still be a family and they wouldn’t let me see him for the past six or seven months. They wanted him to forget us, I think,” she said.
Her children, Kyle and Madison Hullett, told WSBT TV the child was like a brother to them, and they were shocked by his unexpected passing.
