FORSYTH COUNTY, Ga. (MyFOX ATLANTA) - A 2-year-old child died Friday and the Forsyth County Sheriff's Office says the circumstances surrounding the boy's death are suspicious.

The child's mother called 911 just after 7:00 a.m. Friday. When deputies arrived at the home on Catalina Drive in Cumming, the child was already dead.

The mother's boyfriend, 39-year-old Christopher Brian Gilreath, was taken into custody on the unrelated charges of possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and violation of the Georgia sex offender registry. It is believed that Gilreath is a sex offender in Pennsylvania.

The dead child was adopted. A sibling in the home is about the same age. A neighbor said DFCS took the sibling from the home Friday morning.

The child's body was taken to the Georgia Bureau of Investigation crime lab to determine how he died.

Accompanying video states the family just moved from SC 2 months earlier.
