Police have person of interest in 3-year-old’s murder
A three-year-old girl who was found dead in a home on the Northwest Side died from child abuse.
Police officers were called to the home in the 3300 block of North Natchez Avenue Sunday night.
That’s where they found the body of Ashley Mendoza.
Neighbor says the mother told police someone broke into her home while she slept, and she woke up to find her daughter’s body.
But an autopsy revealed she suffered multiple injuries a result of child abuse.
Police say they are talking with someone in the case, but no charges have been filed.
