(KUTV) -- Ogden Police have identified the victim in Friday’s suspicious death as 10-month-old, Alex Hidalgo Jr.
Police say that during the investigation they have been unable to locate the boy’s biological father, Alex Hidalgo, 37, and are now calling him a person of interest.
Anyone with information about Hidalgo’s whereabouts is asked to contact police by either emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling dispatch at 801–629-8221
Friday at 4:00 p.m., Ogden Police responded to reports of a suspicious circumstance in the area of 24th Street and Madison Avenue.
A male infant was found non-responsive inside an apartment. The child was transported to an area hospital where the infant died.
Hidalgo has a criminal history dating back to 2003. He was charged with rape of a child and sex abuse of a child but the charges were dismissed based on "evidence problems," court documents stated.
He was also charged in January 2009 with sexual battery and simple assault but those charges were also dismissed after he took a plea deal that requited him to anger management.
In 2011, Hidalgo was charged with a Class A misdemeanor of assault but the case was dismissed because witnesses in the case did not show up for court.
He additionally has several drug-related arrests, DUI and speeding citations.
