Investigation Launched After Infant Dies In Foster Care
Florida detectives are investigating the death of a toddler who was in foster care and about to be adopted.
The Tampa Bay Times reports that 17-month-old Aedyn Agminalis died last Sunday after being taken off life support.
The Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office has opened a criminal investigation. The boy suffered from bleeding on the brain, cardiac arrest and acute respiratory failure.
Aedyn's birth parents had signed adoption papers last month. He was scheduled to be placed with Colleen Kochanek and Stephanie Norris, a married couple in North Carolina. A court scheduling issue had delayed the transfer until next month.
