A girlís 911 call, a babyís death and a pending investigation have drawn the statewide media spotlight to Butterfield.

At this point, Watonwan County authorities are saying little about the matter, other than the fact that a 14-year old female delivered a newborn at a home in Butterfield within hours of calling 911. That call came in at 5:45 p.m. on Friday, according to a press release from the Watonwan County Sheriff ís Department.

The Butterfield First Responders arrived at the scene first, according to Sheriff Gary Menssen. He was told the baby was already unresponsive when they arrived.
