State Investigates Child's Death; Bryan Center Has Past Violations

The state Child Care Licensing office is investigating an in home child care center where a Bryan infant died Thursday.

Police said a four month old boy stopped breathing during a nap, and foul play is not suspected.

The home on Tiffany Park Circle in Bryan is a registered in home child care center, according to the state. Officials with the state's Child Care Licensing Division said the day care has been registered since at least 1998.

During routine inspections over the past three years, 20 deficiencies were found at the child care center.

According to the state, the violations range from fire safety to required immunizations, and doors not being locked near a swimming pool. Most, if not all of the violations were corrected, according to officials.

Child Protective Services is investigating this latest incident.

"It's just a matter of finding out if any of our standards were violated," said Chris Van Deusen with Family and Protective Services.

"So we'll be talking, as you would with any investigation, to anyone that was there, talk to anyone who has knowledge of the situation and just try to piece together exactly what happened," Van Deusen said.

An autopsy has been ordered to determine what caused the infant's death.
