WHITWELL, Tenn. (AP) - A prosecutor says the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation is treating the death of a 5-year-old boy as a homicide.

Few details have been released in the death of Lucas Michael Dillon. He died Monday at a hospital after suffering an injury Saturday at a home in Whitwell.

Marion County District Attorney Mike Taylor told media that an autopsy in Nashville found the boy died of blunt force trauma to the head and his death is being investigated as a homicide.

Taylor said investigators are interviewing everyone who had access to the boy to determine what happened.
