LEWISTON — It could take up to two weeks for the state Medical Examiner’s Office to release the autopsy results for a baby who died in Lewiston on Monday.

A representative from the office said the medical examiner is waiting for toxicology results, which is standard procedure in the death of a baby.

State and local police are investigating the death of the boy, who was found in a bathtub in his family’s Pierce Street apartment.

Police said Sean St. Amand, 27, placed the baby, who would have turned 1 on Oct. 30, in the tub with his 2-year-old sister for a bath. St. Amand is the father of both children. When St. Amand later checked on the children, the boy was unresponsive.

The boy’s mother, Jennifer Everett, 28, was taking a nap in the apartment at the time.

Police have said they do not know why the father left the room or how long he was gone.
