New information; baby death is now officially homicide, M.E. says

By James Clark | email

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) –  KCBD NewsChannel 11 continues tracking new developments after the death of a Scurry County baby in a Lubbock hospital.

On Wednesday, the office of Lubbock County Medical Examiner had not made an official ruling on the death of two-month-old Makynli Hopkins of Snyder.  However, on Thursday the Medical Examiner's office ruled the case a homicide and said the baby died of cranio-cerebral injuries resulting from blunt force trauma.  In other words the child was hit in the head. 

Makylni was airlifted from Cogdell Memorial hospital in Snyder last week to Covenant Children's Hospital in Lubbock. The baby was pronounced dead on Sunday.

Scurry County Sheriff Darren Jackson tells KCBD NewsChannel 11 that no charges have been filed and the investigation continues. Jackson says Children's Protective Services and Texas Rangers are assisting.
