Reporting of sudden infant deaths vary wildly across the country

The results of an in-depth investigation into infant deaths by Thomas Hargrove and Lee Bowman was launched online this week.
They looked at over 40,000 infant deaths since 1992 to find that "the quality of infant death investigations, the level of training for coroners, and the amount of oversight and review vary enormously across the country." An online database of deaths between 2000-2004 allows readers to see how infant deaths are reported in their county compared to others throughout the US.
