COUNCIL BLUFFS — Two-year-old Elijah Makhia died sometime Thursday at her home in Council Bluffs.
Authorities were called to Featherstone Apartments, 901 N. 35th St., about 2:15 p.m.
Thursday on a report of an unresponsive child.
The child’s mother, 19-year-old Shanunda Curry, and her boyfriend found Elijah unconscious in her bed, Sgt. Dave Dawson of the Council Bluffs Police Department said.
The child was dead when rescue crews arrived. Sgt. Chad Meyers said there is no indication of foul play, but the department “won’t rule anything out.”
“Any time there’s a death of this nature we investigate,” he said. Dawson said the department continues to wait on results of an autopsy performed Friday.
The investigation into the death continues.
