Autopsy results announced in Lee Co. baby death

ALBANY, GA (WALB) –  Preliminary autopsy results show the cause of death of a five month old Lee County baby was suffocation.

K'laysha Holmes was pronounced dead Tuesday morning at Children's Hospital in Macon.

The GBI is still trying to determine whether this baby's death was just an accident or if something more played into the death of what was otherwise a healthy five month old.

GBI agents hope an autopsy of a five month K'laysha Holmes might give them some insight as to why she was found unresponsive Monday morning at the Mayfield Drive home.

"The conditions that the child was living in at the time, we did have some concerns about that, that's one of the reasons DFACS was notified," said  GBI Special Agent Trebor Randle.

GBI agents say they won't know if those conditions were a factor until after the medical examiner takes a look, but pediatricians warn parents should never put an infant in the bed with them.

No charges have been filed involving the baby's death.

The GBI allowed the family to transport the baby's body to South Carolina for a funeral.
