LASD Homicide Detectives Investigate Child Death, 18000 block of Grace Lane, Canyon Country

Sheriff’s Homicide Investigators responded to Children’s Hospital in Los Angeles to investigate the circumstances surrounding the death of a two month old girl from Canyon Country.
Deputies from Santa Clarita Station responded to an apartment in the 18000 block of Grace Lane regarding a medical rescue call of a baby not breathing early Sunday morning around 2:53 AM.  Upon arriving, deputies entered the apartment and found the victim’s father performing cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) on the victim.  Deputies continued CPR and carried the victim to awaiting fire department and ambulance personnel who transported the victim to a local hospital.
The victim was later airlifted to Children’s Hospital in Los Angeles Sunday.  Despite days long attempts to save her life, she was pronounced deceased this morning.
Homicide investigators respond to, and investigate, all child deaths that don’t involve obvious recreational or automobile accidents. 
It is not known at this time if the victim’s death was a result of natural or other than natural causes.  The cause of death will not be known prior to a postmortem medical exam conducted by the Office of Medical Examiner-Coroner.   
The victim’s parents have been cooperative with the investigation and no arrests have been made.

 As it is very early in the investigation, no further information will be released at this time.
Anyone with information about this incident is encouraged to contact the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department's Homicide Bureau at (323) 890-5500. If you prefer to provide information anonymously, you may call "Crime Stoppers" by dialing (800) 222-TIPS (8477), use your smartphone by downloading the “P3 Tips” Mobile APP on Google play or the Apple App Store or by using the website
