SPD: Toddler brought to LSU hospital deceased and bruised

Posted: Updated:

Shreveport police are investigating the death of a toddler after the child was brought to the hospital deceased and bruised Monday night.

Police say a caretaker took a 3-year-old girl to LSU Medical Center just before 9 p.m. The child was pronounced dead at the hospital and reportedly had bruises. Police say they have spent much of Tuesday morning questioning the caretaker and other witnesses. Police are working to confirm where the toddler was at the time of death.

Police say the mother of the 3-year-old is not a suspect because she is in jail. So far, no word on any arrests in the case.
