EAST ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – A one year old baby is dead and St. Clair County Illinois officials are investigating.

The girl was staying with an aunt on Christmas Eve.  The aunt told police the girl, who had been playing with other children and a cat, began spitting up, and it smelled like bleach.

It happened in the 1300 block of North 38th Street in East St. Louis.  The girl was taken to Cardinal Glennon Children’s Hospital in St. Louis where she died.

The Belleville News Democrat reports the case is in the hands of the St. Clair County Juvenile Death Investigation Team.
