Sellersburg, Indiana (WANE) – Details on the cause of death of an unidentified child found dead in a suitcase in southern Indiana on April 16 have been revealed.
The investigation began after a mushroom hunt called 911, after finding the body near a wooded area in Washington County, 80 feet away from Holder Road.
The child was found in a suitcase wrapped with a prominent Las Vegas logo.
An autopsy and toxicology report was released on Friday, revealing that the child died due to an “electrolyte imbalance” due to “viral gastroenteritis.”
However, according to a statement from the Indianapolis Police Department, the report stated that there was “a lack of serious trauma” and “there was no anatomical cause of death.”
The detective says he still has no clue as to whether the child was alive when placed in his suitcase. However, investigators believe that the child is described as a young black man, about five years old, about four feet tall, slim and with short haircuts.
