There have been no charges filed in the death of a 3-year-old girl last week, but the case is not over.

A spokesman for the Pinal County Sheriff’s Office said there had been no arrests “yet.”

“The medical examiner advised our detectives that the baby died from blunt force trauma,”  Mark Clark said.

The girl lived with her natural mother and two other adult females at a home on North Ralston Road near Maricopa.

A 911 call was received Thursday at 6:20 a.m. from a woman reporting the child in medical distress. She said she was driving the girl to the hospital. PCSO described her as the caregiver but has not identified her.

Paramedics met her en route and began life-saving procedures on the child while taking her to the hospital. She reportedly died in the emergency room.

Three other children living at the home on Ralston have been removed by the Department of Child Safety, Clark said.
