ST. LAWRENCE COUNTY, N.Y. -- Police in Potsdam say they spent Wednesday interviewing and questioning family members of the sixth grader who was found dead in his home Monday.
Police say they have received many good leads on the circumstances surrounding 12-year-old Garrett Phillips' death. But because the investigation is ongoing, they cannot talk about them.
Police responded to Phillips' home on Market Street Monday afternoon when neighbors called in a disturbance. Phillips' body was found unconscious and he died a few hours later at the hospital.
Police would not comment on the details of the 911 call or on a side window at the home that had a broken screen. That window seemed to be a focal point of the investigation.
An autopsy on Phillip's body was conducted in Albany on Tuesday. Police are still awaiting the results.
"We continue to work with the leads we have. We've been getting several leads, good leads. We continue to interview people and at this time, we do not have any suspects and we do not have anybody under arrest," Potsdam Police Chief Ed Tischler said.
Police are still looking for leads and are asking anyone with any information to call them at (315) 265-2121.
