MONEE – A two-month-old baby who died at a Monee gas station had his death ruled a homicide by investigators Friday.

Police say the death of Sevyn Simmons happened August 31st at 8:50 a.m. when paramedics responded to a call of an infant who wasn’t breathing at Petro Travel Center at 5915 Monee Manhattan Road.  Simmons was unresponsive at the time and taken to nearby Franciscan Hospital in Olympian Fields.  

He was transferred to Comer Children’s Hospital where he died Friday.  The Cook County medical examiner’s office ruled the death a homicide, reporting Simmons died from blunt force trama, a result of being hit in the head.

According to Monee Police, Sevyn was being cared for by his parents, Kelsey Simmons, 31 of Green Bay and Dominique Scott, 28 of Milwaukee.  

“The three of them were staying overnight at the Petro inside their company truck tractor semi trailer, before returning to Wisconsin.  Both stated that the baby had not been ill, and they did not know why he quit breathing.” Monee Police said Tuesday.

Monee Police are investigating the death in coordination with the Will County States Attorney’s office.
