The death of a 4-year-old is now being investigated as a homicide.
According to the Reynoldsburg Police Department, the Franklin County Coroner's Office ruled that the death of Alfred Hill was not from natural causes.
Hill died in July after police responded to a call about a child not breathing at a home, located in the 1200 block of Baytree Court. Hill was taken to Nationwide Children's Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
Hill's father, Alfred Hill Sr., was arrested the day his son died after he led police on a short chase during the investigation into the 4-year-old's death.
Detectives executed a search warrant at the man's home where they found several other children as well as the deceased child's aunt.
Reynoldsburg police said that Hill, Sr. was wanted on strong arm rape, rape, and kidnapping charges in Columbus and Franklin County.
According to court documents, Hill is accused of forcing his ex-girlfriend, who was 19 at the time, to walk with his 1-year-old daughter to an abandoned house, where he allegedly raped her.
Police said that after the first rape, Hill forced the woman to walk to his home, where he raped her two more times. Detectives said that Hill held the woman and child for more than 14 hours before they were able to escape.
The alleged crime occurred in July 2011.
Reynoldsburg police said that the case was turned over to the Franklin County Prosecutor's Office.
