Salt Lake police say the death of a Rose Park baby Tuesday morning is no longer suspicious, but the cause is still unknown.

Before dawn, emergency crews were called to a home at 535 North Irie Lane about a medical issue involving a baby girl.  The child was taken to the emergency room, where she was later pronounced dead.

Something doctors noticed at the hospital spurred an investigation lasting several hours. The investigative team included homicide detectives, police and crime scene investigators.

The family moved to the Rose Park community about a month ago, but the neighbors seem to know each other and some are family members of the baby girl.

“It couldn’t be a homicide.  It would have to be an accident because the family is good,” said neighbor Curt Aiona.  “They just barely moved in and never anything crazy about the family. They are good.”
