Autopsy: child found in vacant Colo. house was girl
MONUMENT, Colo – Authorities say autopsy results show that a dead child found in the basement of a vacant house in Monument was a girl from 7 to 10 years old.
Police in the city 20 miles north of Colorado Springs say little else is known about the child because of the condition of the body. Investigators are unsure of the girl’s identity and how she died.
Police were called to the vacant home Friday after construction workers renovating the house found the body. The home was previously rented but it has been unoccupied for some time and is now for sale.
The death is being investigated as a homicide.
