9-month-old baby identified in Denver homicide

The Denver Office of the Medical Examiner said the manner of death of Gianna Rosales, who would have turned 1 on Oct. 25, is pending investigation.

DENVER — The name of the 9-month-old baby who died Wednesday, two days after being taken to Denver Health Medical Center, was released Friday. 

The Denver Office of the Medical Examiner said the cause and manner of death of Gianna Rosales, who would have turned 1 on Oct. 25, is pending investigation.

The Denver Police Department (DPD) earlier this week said they initially thought the incident involving Gianna happened in another jurisdiction. But after learning it happened in Denver, they are trying to locate where Gianna was prior to being brought to the hospital.

DPD didn't release any more details other than Gianna was taken to Denver Health about 7:30 a.m. Monday and was pronounced deceased Wednesday. 

The death is being investigated as a homicide and there have been no arrests.
