Autopsy Results Deferred In Case Of Canyon Country Toddler

Results could be 4 to 8 weeks out.

 

Coroner’s officials have not determined a cause of death in the case of 1 year-old Jack Winchester, the child found dead in his mother’s minivan on Monday afternoon.

An autopsy was conducted on Wednesday, but doctors are waiting for test results.

 

“The cause of death is deferred,” said Coroner’s spokesman Craig Harvey. “That means that the doctors have not entered a cause of death in the system pending receipt of lab test results and tissue studies they have ordered.”

Harvey said it could be 4 to 8 weeks before a cause of death is finally determined.

Winchester’s body has not been released from the Coroner’s Office. The 23-month old boy died after spending several hours in the family car after a shopping trip, when his mother assumed other children were looking after him. The temperature outside the vehicle was 95 degrees.
