GOLDSBORO, N.C. — The Wayne County Sheriff's Office on Wednesday was investigating the death of a 21-month-old boy.

The boy's mother took him to the emergency room at Wayne Memorial Hospital on Monday afternoon because he wasn't acting normally, authorities said. He died at the hospital.

A preliminary autopsy determined that the boy, whose name hasn't been released, died of trauma to the body, but investigators haven't determined whether the trauma was accidental or intentional.
