CICERO, Ill. (Sun-Times Media Wire) -

Child welfare officials are investigating the Thursday death of a 2 1/2-month-old boy from west suburban Cicero.

Alexander Raudales of the 1500 block of South Austin Boulevard died at 5:47 a.m. at MacNeal Hospital in Berwyn, according to the Cook County Medical Examiner's office.

The state Dept. of Children and Family Services is investigating Alexander's mother and father for allegations of neglect, DCFS spokeswoman Veronica Resa said. The agency has not had prior contact with the family.

Another child in the house has been placed with family members under a DCFS-monitored safety plan, Resa said.

Police couldn't immediately provide details Friday morning on the circumstances surrounding Alexander's death.

An autopsy conducted Friday was inconclusive, with results pending further studies, according to the medical examiner's office.
