The boy died at Butler Memorial Hospital on Tuesday afternoon, but the incident began to unfold around 10 a.m.

Officials say Miller was found unresponsive in a car in the parking lot at the Armco Credit Union in Pullman Square. A person associated with the family called 911.

Police and paramedics responded to the scene and performed CPR before the boy was rushed to the hospital, where he died.

KDKA's Brenda Waters Reports:

Later, state police forensic team spent much of the day assisting local police at the Super 8 Motel in Butler, identified as a crime scene.

The motel is where Keith Jordan Lambing had been most recently staying with the 4-year-old boy, the boy's mother and a baby. Miller's relatives confirm he is the target of the suspicious death investigation.

Butler Township Police say they want to talk to Lambing, describing him as "a person of interest" in their investigation. But, there's no warrant for his arrest. He is known as Jordan Lambing to many.

The Motel 8 manager told KDKA-TV's Ralph Iannotti that neither her employees nor motel guests reported anything unusual or suspicious about Lambing and the others.

Manager Anna LePore Conte said, "It was the mother of the children and a boyfriend, and they seemed fine. I didn't have problem with them. The children seemed fine. They were here a couple of days."

Sources said Miller showed signs of unexplained injuries.

Police plan to meet with the Butler County District Attorney's Office on Wednesday.

"I'm just as shocked as everybody, it's a horrible thing to happen," said Conte.
