Infant's death raises questions in Cullman County

Posted: Updated:
CULLMAN COUNTY, AL - A one year old's death is being investigated in Cullman County.

This comes after officials at Cullman Regional Medical Center notified deputies earlier this week. Investigators were told one year old Hoss Wayne Benham died in a bathtub drowning at Monk's Trailer Park on US Highway 31 North.

On Tuesday, workers at the hospital told the Sheriff's Office the child had several suspicious injuries. An autopsy has been performed -- but the cause of death has not been released.

The boy's mother, Crystal Ballenger and her boyfriend, Jeffery Brown were both interviewed.

Brown has been arrested and charged with aggravated child abuse.
