Child abuse may have caused death of 8-year-old

The Illinois Department of Children and Family Services is investigating the grandmother of an 8-year-old girl who may have died as a result of child abuse and neglect.

An autopsy was scheduled Saturday on Gizzell Ford, who was pronounced dead at her South Austin home Friday morning.

DCFS is also investigating whether the grandmother neglected the girls’ two siblings.
