Infant Boy found Dead In His Crib

Rev Robert Jenkins conducted funeral services in the Baptist Church at 2pm Wednesday for Richard Lee Barton, 3-months-old son of Mr & Mrs Marvin Barton, who was found dead in his crib at 7 o'clock Monday morning. Burial was in the Wickenburg Cemetery.

Mrs Barton got up at 5:30am Monday and fed the baby and put him in his crib. When she got up again at 7am, the baby was dead. Police Officer Vernon Flippin, who investigated, says it is thought the baby died of suffocation.

The child's father came here five weeks ago from Phoenix to work for Hatfield Air Conditioning.

Surviving in addition to the parents are two other children, John and Christie.
