LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Reports that the Lubbock Medical Examiner has already ruled "homicide" in the death of a baby are not true.
KCBD NewsChannel 11 has confirmed from investigator Robert Byers in the M.E.'s office that Chief Medical Examiner Srhidar Natarajan has not signed off on the case of a two month old who died after being airlifted from Scurry County to Covenant Children's Hospital in Lubbock.
The Abilene Reporter News identifies the child as Makynli Hopkins of Snyder. The paper identifies the parents at 23-year-old Zach Hopkins and 22-year-old Cassidy Harbin of Snyder. The newspaper says the child suffered head injuries and died Sunday in Lubbock.
Calls to the Scurry County Sheriff's office have not yet been returned.
