Carter County sheriff says 4-year-old boy's death suspicious


ELIZABETHTON — Carter County Sheriff Chris Mathes said his department is investigating the death of a 4-year-old child on Tuesday, and said there were “suspicious circumstances” about the death.


Mathes said his department was still investigating the incident and a report was not yet available. The boy was identified as Cody Cox, 340 Lovers Lane.


“The incident took place before 12:45 p.m.,” Mathes said. The death occurred while Cody’s mother left the residence on Lovers Lane for a short time. He said a brother and cousin, ages 13 and 10, were left at home to care for the 4-year-old.
