VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) - It was still not clear Wednesday evening what caused the death of a 14 month-old Valdosta girl early Monday.

Tuesday's autopsy by the GBI on Adalin Bridges did determine the cause of death, so the state medical examiner is conducting a further investigation. Valdosta Police said Wednesday that the investigation may take a while as the medical examiner may have to wait for the child's medical records.

"We're just waiting for the medical examiner to complete their investigation before we move forward in the case," said Valdosta Police Department Lieutenant Aaron Kirk. "It's possible that [the medical examiner is] tryin' to get medical records. A lot of times in an autopsy investigation, they review old medical records of the patient."

So far, police say there is no indication that the death was the result of a criminal act.
