MOKENA, Ill. (AP) — Initial autopsy results show a 3-year-old suburban Chicago girl drowned in an in-ground swimming pool while at a Fourth of July party with family.
The Will County coroner’s office said Monday that Lamees Mohammed drowned Saturday. She was found in a pool at a home in the southwestern Chicago suburb of Mokena. A final cause of death is pending toxicology results.
