Baby’s Death Under Investigation

KSAL StaffSeptember 3, 2014

State officials are investigating the death of a 4-month-old girl at a foster home in a Wichita suburb.

Sedgwick County officials say the girl died last Thursday at the home in Bel Aire. Sheriff Jeff Easter says the girl’s 18-year-old mother was sleeping with her on a couch and apparently rolled on top of the child. He says the investigation is continuing but the girl’s death appears to be an accident.

Easter says a preliminary autopsy found no traumatic injuries on the girl.

The child was not in foster care. However, the Kansas Department of Health and Environment is investigating because the death occurred at a foster home. Placements at the home are on hold while officials review the death.
