Death of Pasadena toddler under investigation

This from the Star-News: 


PASADENA — An autopsy is scheduled to be performed today on a 2-year-old Pasadena boy found dead in his crib yesterday, county coroner’s officials said this morning.

Some preliminary results could be available late this afternoon, officials said.

Police received a frantic call from the boy’s mother saying the toddler was unresponsive. Paramedics rushed to the home in the 500 block of North Summit Avenue on Tuesday morning, but were unsuccessful in their attempts to revive the child, who was pronounced dead at the scene.


Police have not said whether they suspect criminal conduct. Their investigation coincides with a push by LA county supervisors to better monitor the county’s child welfare system.
