WATERVILLE, Maine — Maine State Police and the Medical Examiner are still trying to determine what caused the death of a 12-week-old baby at a Waterville homeless shelter.

Following the May 18 death at the Mid-Maine Homeless Shelter, Director Betty Palmer called the death a tragic incident. She said every effort was made by shelter officials, emergency workers and hospital personnel to revive the infant.

The name of the infant has not been released.

The Attorney General’s office requires that deaths of children under age 3 be investigated by state police and the Medical Examiner.

State police Sgt. Anna Love tells the Morning Sentinel of Waterville that investigators are waiting for test results.
