Police are appealing for information after a baby boy was found dead in suspicious circumstances.
Emergency services found the body of a nine-month-old child at a home on Sonter Street in Ipswich, Queensland, on June 21.
Detective Inspector Dave Briese said the cause of death can’t be revealed as they are still waiting for some pathological test reports.
He said a forensic examination conducted over a number of days has revealed the child died in suspicious circumstances.

‘We have identified a number of family friends and associates and spoken with them,’ Detective Inspector Briese said.
‘It doesn’t mean that we have spoken with everyone. We want to speak to more people who know about the family and its habits around the children.’
The officer said police are investigating all angles when asked if they were looking into malnourishment as a possible cause of death.
He said an investigation centre is running at Yamanto Police Station with detectives from Ipswich Child Protection Unit and State Crime Command’s Child Trauma Unit.
Detective Inspector Briese appealed for anyone with information that may assist to contact police.
