Discovered unresponsive, later died at the hospital, the death is being investigated.


A 10-year-old girl died after being found unresponsive in her Northside home late Saturday night, according to the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office.

Police responded to a home on Devan Lee Drive around 11:30 p.m.

Family members told police they found the girl unresponsive in her bedroom.  She was taken to Shands Jacksonville Medical Center, where she was pronounced dead.

As of Monday morning, police had not released the girl's name.  While investigators are awaiting autopsy results for the cause of death, they suspect asphyxiation because she was found wedged between her bed and a wall.
