The Illinois Department of Children and Family services is investigating the death of an infant Saturday in Hazel Crest.

Six-week-old Uzziyah Griffin, of the 17000 block of Head Avenue, died at 8:58 p.m. at Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, according to the Cook County medical examiner’s office.

DCFS is investigating nine allegations of neglect against the infant’s parents, spokesman Dave Clarkin said.

Eight other children of the parents now are in the care of another relative, Clarkin said.

An autopsy is scheduled for Monday.

Oak Lawn police are investigating.
