The Ramsey County Medical Examiner's Office has determined the cause and manner of death of a child found not breathing at his Breckenridge home Tuesday, April 10. 

According to a release, the medical examiner determined the 3-year-old boy, who lived in the Park Manor apartments at 200 Park Avenue in Breckenridge, died of homicide due to blunt force trauma. The cause of the blunt force trauma has not yet been determined, but the case remains under investigation. 


The child's father and his girlfriend, who live at the same residence, have cooperated with investigators as they try to determine what happened. 

Breckenridge Police Department officers and Ambulance Services Inc. responded to a 911 call from the apartment of a child not breathing at approximately 10:11 a.m. on April 10. Upon arrival, officers and paramedics attempted life-saving measures, but the child was pronounced deceased at the scene.
