Autopsy: Infant choked on tightly-packed baby wipe

JACKSONVILLE, N.C. (AP) - An autopsy has found a 10-month old boy found dead in Jacksonville three months ago choked on a baby wipe.

WITN-TV reports (http://bit.ly/10BEzU0 ) the wipe was tightly packed into Aidyn Burton's throat.

The child's father, Marine Cpl. Rodney Burton, committed suicide a day after seeing his son. He told police he didn't know if the child was alive or not when he visited on Feb. 26.

Police say he sent his girlfriend a text just before he shot himself saying he was sorry he put her through this.
