Dad, infant daughter found dead in western Wis.

BALDWIN, Wis. - There is heartache in the small community of Baldwin, Wisconsin after a father and his infant daughter were found dead in the family's apartment Tuesday.

Police Chief Darren Krueger says 39-year-old Jeffrey long and 14-week-old Aubree Long were discovered shortly before 5 p.m. in the residence at 280 Cedar Street. Jeffrey Long was suffering from a self-inflicted gunshot wound, and the child was unresponsive. Despite lifesaving efforts neither survived.

The Ramsey County Medical Examiner's Office officially ruled Jeffrey Long's death a suicide. No external or internal trauma observed on the infant, and toxicology and microscopic testing is being performed.

Chief Krueger could not elaborate on the child's possible cause of death, saying only that the investigation is ongoing.
