Temple Police Investigating Pair of Saturday Morning Deaths
Temple police are investigating after a child was pronounced deceased at a local hospital and another person was found dead a short time later.
According to Temple PD Media Relations Specialist Ellen Morton, officers were dispatched to Baylor Scott & White McLane Children's Medical Center at 1901 SW H K Dodgen Loop shortly before 3:30 AM in response to a welfare concern call.
Upon arrival, officers learned that a juvenile patient had been transported to McLane Children's and pronounced dead upon arrival.
During the course of their investigation, police discovered another deceased individual in the 4700 block of Midway Drive.
Morton described the juvenile patient as a "victim", but did not say what the nature of the patient's injuries were, nor those of the other deceased person. Neither person's identity or age was revealed, and police continued to investigate late Saturday morning.
We will have updates as soon as they become available.
