Baby’s death in Kansas City believed to be natural

Kansas City police were investigating the death Wednesday of a 3-month-old girl but believe the death to be natural.

Police were called at 9:33 a.m. to meet firefighters who were transporting the baby to Children’s Mercy Hospital from a home in the 5300 block of Winner Road. The baby was not breathing. A short time later, doctors pronounced the baby dead.

Detectives found no signs of abuse or foul play. They plan to wait for the Jackson County Medical Examiner’s office to determine the cause of death.
