Authorities are investigating the death of a 1-year-old boy last week in the Austin neighborhood on the West Side.
Christian Rice of the 1400 block of North Laramie died at Loyola Medical Center in Maywood at 11:21 a.m. Friday, according to the Cook County Medical Examiner’s office.
An autopsy Sunday was inconclusive, with results pending further studies, according to the medical examiner’s office.
The state Department of Children and Family Services is investigating the boy’s mother for neglect, spokeswoman Veronica Resa said.
The agency previously “indicated” his mother for neglect of the boy in March, Resa said. There were no other children in the home.
