The man arrested following the suspicious death of a 14-month-old Chilliwack girl in Promontory Heights Friday has been released without charges.

Police have called the death suspicious and suspect foul play.

At around 10 p.m. Friday, RCMP were called to a house on Mullins Road in Chilliwack for the 14-month-old baby girl who appeared to be in medical distress.

The baby was taken to hospital where attempts to revive her were unsuccessful.

An autopsy to determine the cause of death is expected to be completed later this week.

Due to the suspicious nature of this death, the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team was called to assist.

Police are releasing few details about the incident, only to say, “IHIT investigators, with the assistance of the LMD Integrated Forensics Identification Section, are continuing to process evidence and determine the events preceding this tragic death.”
