9 year old declared dead after early morning 911 call

Kitsap County Sheriff’s Office is currently conducting an investigation

BREMERTON — A 9-year-old boy died early Oct. 31, despite efforts by Central Kitsap Fire and Rescue emergency responders to revive the child using CPR.

CKFR went to the home in the 14000 block of NW Symes Road in Bremerton at 6:58 a.m. Oct. 31 in response to a 911 call.

Kitsap County sheriff’s officers also went to the scene. Sheriff’s spokesman Deputy Scott Wilson said officers “felt the situation was suspicious enough that they requested detectives to respond.”

Wilson said the boy’s mother and father were present in the house, and the father made the 911 call. He said investigators are still unsure what happened to the child and an investigation is underway. Detectives received a warrant to enter and search the residence with the assistance of the Washington State Patrol Criminal Investigation Division.

Wilson said the Kitsap County Coroner’s office will also assist and will send a forensic pathologist to help determine the boy’s cause of death and assist in examining the scene.

“[Now we wait for] the forensic pathologist to say, ‘Yeah, that’s not a natural thing,’ or ‘It is a natural thing,’ ” Wilson said. “We just don’t know right now.”

Updates will be provided when more information is available.
