An 11-month-old baby has been found dead at a school in the northern Perth suburb of Darch.
The baby’s body was found on the premises of Kingsway Christian College last night, with emergency services called to the scene.
WA Police said detectives from the Major Crime Squad had launched an investigation into the infant’s death.
They were joined at the scene by forensic investigators and St John Ambulance officers.
