WESTBROOK, Maine — The Maine State Police and the Westbrook Police Department are investigating the death of a 2-year-old girl who died at her home in Westbrook.

Madeline Negron was found dead in her playpen Monday morning at 10 Cross St., Stephen McCausland, spokesman for the Maine Department of Public Safety, said in a news release.

McCausland said the child slept in the playpen and last was seen alive when she was put to bed Sunday night.

The toddler lived with her parents, Jessica Joy and Raoul Negron, McCausland said. An autopsy is scheduled for Tuesday at the state medical examiner’s office in Augusta.

There is no immediate indication of foul play as investigators await the medical examiner’s conclusions, McCausland said, adding that state police investigate all deaths involving children under the age of 3.
