The Illinois Department of Children and Family Services is investigating the death of a six-month-old girl Friday in west suburban Berwyn.
Madelyn Reilly was found unresponsive in a bed at her home in the 3700 block of Wisconsin Avenue in Berwyn, according to Cook County Medical Examiner’s office.
An autopsy Saturday was inconclusive pending further studies, officials with the medical examiner’s office said.
DCFS is investigating allegations of neglect against the child’s mother, agency spokesman Dave Clarkin said.
The agency has no prior contact with the family and there are no siblings in the home, according to Clarkin.
