The Olympia Police Department is investigating the death of an infant girl who was pronounced dead on arrival at Providence St. Peter Hospital Friday evening.
The 5-month-old who Thurston County Coroner Gary Warnock identified as Allyiona Hickok was transported by ambulance from the Fleetwood Apartments across from Sylvester Park after a 911 call just before 6 p.m., a police spokeswoman said Monday. The baby did not live at the residence in the Fleetwood Apartments, Warnock said.
The Fleetwood Apartments at 119 Seventh Ave. are low-income housing units, mostly for veterans, and they are managed by the Low Income Housing Institute in Seattle. The executive director of the Low Income Housing Institute could not be reached for comment Monday.
Warnock said two Olympia police detectives were present Monday morning for the infant's autopsy. Warnock said Monday afternoon that the results of the autopsy, including cause and manner of death, are pending. He said he would not reveal details about whether the child suffered trauma or injury because he does not want to compromise the police investigation.
Olympia Police Sgt. Aaron Jelcick did not return repeated phone calls Monday seeking comment.
Olympia Police Department spokeswoman Laura Wohl would not say who, if anyone, was in the apartment with the baby at the time of the 911 call. She also would not disclose whether the person who made the 911 call was in the apartment with the child or other basic information about the situation.
