Sioux Falls police call toddler's death suspicious

Posted: Updated:

Sioux Falls police say an 18-month-old toddler's death on Christmas day is suspicious.

Police and Fire crews responded to a medical emergency Monday afternoon at 401 S. Sycamore Avenue.  When they arrived, they found an 18-month-old toddler who was not breathing.  The child also did not have a pulse.  The child regained a heart beat after rescue efforts were attempted and the child was taken to Avera McKennan Hospital.

Tuesday afternoon, police were told the child had died.  They were also alerted to some suspicious medical findings.  

An autopsy was conducted Wednesday afternoon to help determine the cause of death and the findings were suspicious in nature.  That prompted a criminal investigation by the Sioux Falls Police. 

An investigation is ongoing and people related to this incident are being interviewed.
