Jackson Lowe funeral held

A Lee County toddler was laid to rest Monday as the investigation into his death continues.

15-month-old Jackson Lowe didn't wake up from his nap Thursday afternoon at Byne Memorial Child Development Center. Many of the day care employees attended the funeral.

Byne Administrative Officer Donna Pinson told us that workers there are grieving and praying for the family. They're also cooperating with the investigation. An autopsy showed no trauma.

Investigators say they found no wrongdoing by the daycare, so their investigation will focus on medical results.

"Our goal is to find out why the child died, and those issues will be done from the investigation that we do along with the medical examiner does, as well so we'll combine both investigation and determine exactly how this child died,"  Greg Blackmon of the Dougherty Child Death Investigation Team.

Bright from the Start, the policing agency for the state's more than 6,000 daycare and child development centers was notified of the death and will also conduct an investigation.

The agency found nearly 500 major incidents at Georgia day care centers over the past five years, including eight deaths and 239 injuries.
