Police are now treating the death of an 11 month old baby boy in Co Armagh on Tuesday as murder. 

Hunter McGleenon was found unresponsive at a house in Keady. 

Yesterday police were granted an additional 36 hours to question a 31-year-old suspect who remains in custody.

That will expire at midnight tonight. 

The development comes after a post-mortem examination was carried out.     

Senior Investigating Officer, Detective Chief Inspector Eamonn Corrigan said her thoughts are with Hunter’s family and loved ones who are "coming to terms with their devastating loss".

"This is something no parent should ever have to experience," he added. 

"His family should be looking forward to Hunter’s second Christmas.  

Detective Chief Inspector Corrigan is seeking information about the movements of a White BMW 5 Series, registration 11D14035, around the Keady area during the early hours of Tuesday 26 November.

"Were you in the area and do you believe you saw this vehicle, or did you capture it on your dash cam?

"I would appeal to anyone who has any information to contact detectives on 101 quoting reference 587 of the 26/11/19. Alternatively information can be provided anonymously to the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111."
