Police investigate 6-year-old’s death, possibly due to virus
LONGMONT, Colo. — Police sealed a Longmont four-plex where officials are investigating the death of a 6-year-old, possibly caused by an illness.
The child’s death appeared to have been caused by the flu or a similar virus, said Cmdr. Tim Lewis.
Lewis said the home is contained and there was no danger to the public.
The girl, identified by the Boulder County Coroner as Lluvia Espinoza Morales, was taken to the hospital Monday morning by family members.
Investigators wore hazmat gear and sealed the home out of an abundance of caution, Lewis said. The scene was pronounced clear around 5 p.m.
