ONTARIO, Ore. (AP) — Investigators say the death of a 6-year-old boy in southwestern Idaho has been ruled a suicide. Payette Police Chief Mark Clark told The Argus Observer he assigned four detectives to investigate the child’s June 3 death and they found no sign of foul play.

Clark said the child was watching TV with his 7-year-old sister while an older sibling napped and his mother and stepfather showered. Clark says that’s when the boy went into the kitchen and used a belt to hang himself from the freezer handle.

The boy’s sister found him and screamed for the parents, who called 911 and administered CPR until paramedics arrived. Clark said it’s not clear if suicide was the boy’s intent or if he didn’t understand the consequences of his actions.
