The family of a child found dead in a home in the Northland on Tuesday has identified the boy as 8-year-old Audrick Warren.

According to reports, family members told local media outlets that Audrick drowned.

Eddie Warren, Audrick’s grandfather, told WDAF-TV Fox 4 that the child died in the bathtub of his parent’s Northland townhome.

Attempts by the Star to reach family members for comment were unsuccessful Wednesday.

“Our son’s son, Audrick, experienced a drowning, and we don’t have all the details yet on that,” Eddie Warren told the television station. “My son came, found his son, and called me. He was hysterical after coming home and finding his son unresponsive. After that he dialed 911 after trying to resuscitate him.”

The family believes the boy’s death was an accident, but is waiting on a report from the medical examiner and what police find, the station reported.

Police have not said how the child died.

Audrick was found unresponsive Tuesday afternoon in a home in the 5800 block of North London Avenue in Kansas City.

Emergency personnel pronounced him dead at the scene.
