WAGNER — State and local authorities are continuing their investigation into a child’s death at Wagner.
The Press & Dakotan had received an inquiry about the death of a 3-year-old child in Wagner.
Charles Mix County Sheriff Randy Thaler and the Wagner Police Department confirmed the case Thursday. They both referred questions to the office of South Dakota Attorney General Jason Ravnsborg.
AG spokesman Tim Bormann told the Press & Dakotan that local authorities had requested assistance from the Division of Criminal Investigation (DCI).
In response to the request, the DCI sent agents to assist with the case, he said.
Bormann couldn’t provide additional details, noting the AG’s office doesn’t comment on an ongoing investigation.
