    Were there marks on the child? police didn’t say.if there was no abuse AT ALL, maybe she had a fatal condition none knew about, she could have died from meningitis (i had it as an infant, lost 2 cousins to it 20 yrs later, it kills QUICK .if she died from a disease or some other medical problem NOT related to abuse. they certainly cant try him for murder and he did call 911.I’m with Robert Gift, need to learn more how soon after he discovered she wasn’t breathing did he call 911? did he try to revive her? what was the time frame from the time he last saw her and was fine then when he found her unresponsive? was he rough housing with her and didn’t realize it was too rough for a child that young? i hope we get answers soon an i sooo hope that guy didn’t kill that child.
