Police: Father arrested after 3-month-old found dead

- A 23-year-old father is in the Forsyth County Detention Center after the death of his 3-month-old daughter, according to officials.

Forsyth County Police said that deputies were called to a home on Little Mill Road due to a medical emergency. When they got to the home, they quickly transported 3-month-old Skylar Picklesimer to a local hospital, where she was pronounced deceased.

Originally Skylar's father, Jacob Picklesimer, told police that he found the infant unresponsive while she was in bed with both of her parents, authorities said.

According to police, further investigation by the Forsyth County Sheriff's Office's Major Crimes Unit found that Skylar had suffered significant head trauma.

After interviews with both parents and witnesses, officers arrested Jacob Picklesimer. He has been charged with involuntary manslaughter and first-degree cruelty to children.

He is currently in the detention center with no bond.

The investigation is ongoing.
