Investigators Look Into CS Toddler's Injury

The Brazos County Sheriff's Office is investigating an injury to a child case that left a College Station toddler with unknown head injuries.

The incident happened April 3 at a baby sitter's house.

One-year-old Alexis Verzal was taken to the College Station Medical Center and then air lifted to Scott and White in Temple with brain swelling.

Authorities don't believe her injuries were accidental, according to Sheriff Chris Kirk, but officials are not releasing the name of the person or persons under investigation.

The Verzals declined to comment until the investigation is complete. However, they say Alexis is now at a rehab center in Lincoln, Nebraska.

The state's Child Care Licensing Office is also investigating the in-home daycare where Alexis was injured. Chris Van Deusen from Family and Protective Services says they received a report that the center was operating illegally.

According the Van Deusen, anyone who provides regular child care in their home for 1-3 unrelated children must be listed with the state, however, they are not subject to inspection unless there is a report of abuse or neglect.
