Albuquerque Police are investigating the death of an 11-day-old. 

The newborn died at MATS Detox, the county’s alcohol and drug rehab facility. 

MATS officials say the mother, who was staying there, reported her newborn unresponsive Wednesday morning. 

The mother was enrolled in the Mariposa Residential Program. The program provides housing, medical care and drug rehabilitation services to pregnant and post-partum women and their babies. 

APD says the investigation is ongoing and charges will possibly be filed at a later time. 

They say right now the cause of death is still unknown.
