A preliminary investigation into the death of a 3-month-old Alsip girl yielded no indications that a crime had occurred, police said Wednesday.
The Illinois Department of Children and Family Services was investigating allegations of abuse and neglect in connection with the girl’s death, spokesman Jimmy Whitelow said Tuesday. But Alsip police said Wednesday there were no signs of trauma that would indicate foul play.
An autopsy Wednesday was inconclusive pending further studies, the Cook County medical examiner’s office said.
Alsip Fire Department paramedics found the girl unresponsive Tuesday when they arrived at a home in the 11900 block of Central Avenue, according to police.
Delilah Sosa was taken to Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, where she was pronounced dead at 10:34 a.m., according to the medical examiner’s office.
Whitelow said DCFS had no prior contact with the family, but three other children in the home have been placed in the care of relatives.
