Detectives Investigating Death of Five-Month Old Girl

CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) -

Child crimes detectives are currently investigating the death of a five-month old girl who was found not breathing Friday afternoon on the 2500 block of Nogales.

When first responders arrived at the scene, the baby was already deceased. Now, detectives are investigating the suspicious death as a homicide, pending a ruling from the Nueces County Medical Examiner's Office.

"It's very hard to tell on small children, unless there is visible trauma, and we don't have any right now at this time," said Lt. Patrick McMenamy of the Corpus Christi Police Department.

Once police get the results from the Medical Examiner's Office, they will know whether they need to move forward with criminal investigation or whether it's just a natural death. Police hope to find out the results within a few days.
