Coroner: Baby at Carmel day care likely died of sudden infant death syndrome

Final report not yet released

CARMEL, Ind. - A baby who died at a Carmel day care last month likely died of SIDS, also known as sudden infant death syndrome, the Hamilton County Coroner reported.

The coroner has yet to issue a final report on the baby's death.

As the Call 6 Investigators were first to report, “Stacey Cox Child Care” -- an unlicensed home day care -- was forced to close its doors after the death.   
 
Two caregivers tested positive for marijuana shortly after the 5-month-old was found not breathing in a broken crib.

A court hearing was originally scheduled for Wednesday morning to determine if the business can re-open its doors, but that hearing was postponed then rescheduled for March 5 at 10 a.m.
