Police investigating death of baby from Housing Dept home
POLICE are investigating the death of a baby girl in Brisbane's north.
The child died in hospital after being found unresponsive at a house owned by the Department of Housing on Handford Rd in Zillmere.
Commissioner Katarina Carroll confirmed the death today.
"Certainly, tragically a child has passed away at that household," she said.
"Early days for us, so I can't say much more than that but the investigation has commenced in earnest.
"We have all our expert police out there looking at it at the moment but I don't know exactly what the cause is ... there is a lot more to be done in the investigation first."
It's understood the baby girl was found face down this morning.
Ms Carroll said police always treated deaths suspiciously until they knew the cause of death.
Police are waiting on postmortem results.
