Death of NH baby boy leads to meth bust, parents' arrests in Concord

CONCORD — The death of an infant boy led police to a methamphetamine bust and the arrests of the boy's parents.

Police responded to Penacook Street for the report of an unconscious boy. The boy was pronounced dead at the hospital.

Investigations showed that the infant was living with his parents and another 2-year-old child in a camper. The 2-year-old is healthy, officials said.

A search warrant was issued for entry into the home of Bradford Ross, 24, and Kayla Austin, 20, of Concord.

During the investigation police found multiple packages of methamphetamine, which they said appeared to be for sale.

In total, police found 25 grams of meth in the camper. Ross and Austin were arrested without incident and are being held on $50,000 cash.

They are both charged with possession of a narcotic with intent to distribute, endangering the welfare of a child, and possession of a controlled drug.

They will be arraigned Friday at about 11 a.m. in Concord district court.

Police said the investigation into the infant's death is ongoing, but there does not appear to be foul play.
