A couple, a 24-year-old man and a 23-year-old woman, have been released after they were arrested on suspicion of murdering their baby boy, who neighbours claim was suffocated with a hoodie and left for dead.

Police were called to Walnut Close in Bilston, West Midlands, on Sunday, to reports of a child in cardiac arrest.

The six-month-old baby boy was taken to hospital but died a short time later.

A neighbour claimed the baby died after "being suffocated with a hoodie", although the results of a forensic post-mortem examination will not be known until a few weeks time.



Another neighbour said: "They were drugged up. It's awful. Police were still there all night, and still there now.

"The baby was always crying in the pushchair. I used to see them at the local shop, constantly crying.

"I wish I would have asked if everything was ok or called someone for help. You don't know what happens behind closed doors.

"All I know is the couple are both unemployed and have another boy aged four. It's such a sad story.

A West Midlands Police spokesman confirmed they have both been arrested on suspicion of murder, and said: "Police are investigating the circumstances of the death."
