The results of an autopsy Wednesday to determine how a toddler died at a Kansas City, Kan., child care center Tuesday were inconclusive, authorities said.
The 11-month-old boy, whose name police have not released, reportedly was found unresponsive late Tuesday afternoon by staff at the Advantage Child Care Center at 55th Street and Metropolitan Avenue. Day care staff ran for help to a Kansas City, Kan., Fire Department station next door.

No signs of physical trauma to the boy were noted during the autopsy, according to authorities, who will await to see what toxicology testing will reveal. It could take several weeks to get those results.
Kansas City, Kan., police are investigating the circumstances of his death. The Kansas Department of Health and Environment is also conducting an investigation to determine if there were any violations state child care laws and regulations.
In March, during an annual check, the health department noted that a number of workers at the facility did not have documentation to show they had received required training for pediatric first aid and CPR, recognizing and reporting child abuse and neglect and safe sleeping practices and sudden infant death syndrome, according to health department records.
Those staff members received the training and provided proper documentation by the end of that month, health department officials said.
