The teen’s parents called 911 about 8:30 p.m. Monday after finding the infant’s lifeless body at their home.
He was likely born 24 to 36 hours before being found deceased, according to the KSWB station.
The infant’s mother told investigators she did not know she was pregnant, and gave birth unknowingly.
The newborn, who weighed approximately 7.5 pounds, appeared to have been delivered after a full-term pregnancy, police told KSWB
He showed no signs of suspicious injuries.
An autopsy was conducted the following day, but a cause and manner of death has not yet been released.
Detectives are working with the San Diego County Medical Examiner’s Office to determine whether a crime had been committed, according to KSWB.
No further details about the case were immediately provided.
