Final report not yet released
Last Updated: 294 days ago
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.
