Hoffman Estates police investigating death of 18-month-old girl
Hoffman Estates police are investigating the death of an 18-month-old girl who police said was transported to the hospital late Monday after being found "unconscious and not breathing."
An autopsy was scheduled for Tuesday, but the Cook County medical examiner's office did not immediately release the results.
Police said their own investigation had not yielded any evidence of suspicious activity.
"It's an ongoing investigation, but at this point we don't believe there's any foul play involved," Hoffman Estates police Sgt. John Bending said.
Police said officers and other emergency workers were called to the 1400 block of Crowfoot Circle just before 10:30 p.m. Monday after the girl's condition was discovered.
The girl, Maryam Ali, was taken to St. Alexius Medical Center in Hoffman Estates, where she was pronounced dead just before midnight, authorities said.
