In Illinois, No charges so far in Mount Prospect baby’s death | Shaken Baby Syndrome

No charges have reportedly been filed thus far in the death of a 4-month-old Mount Prospect girl found unresponsive last week at an unlicensed home day care center in Hoffman Estates.
The Cook County Medical Examiner’s office is reportedly conducting further studies after an inconclusive autopsy Monday, Hoffman Estates Police Sgt. Darin Felgenhauer said.
Anna Belle Chung, who was reportedly unconscious and not breathing when paramedics arrived the morning of April 18 at the home on the 4200 block of Crimson Drive, was taken to St. Alexius Medical Center in Hoffman Estates, then transferred to Children’s Memorial Hospital that night. She was pronounced dead at 11:44 a.m. Saturday at Children’s Memorial, police said.
Meanwhile, an Illinois Department of Children and Family Services reported investigation into allegations of abuse against a care provider associated with the center also is pending, spokesman Jimmie Whitelow said.
DCFS has reportedly ordered the Hoffman Estates day care facility, Sunflower Christian Montessori, to cease operating. Messages left on the Montessori day care’s answering machine have not been returned.
Hospital officials reportedly told the Cook County Medical Examiner the death could be a result of shaken baby syndrome.
