RCMP investigating after 21 month old Manitoba toddler dies of injuries

HODGSON, Man. - Flags are being flown at half mast on the Peguis First Nation after police declared the death of a 21-month-old child is being treated as a homicide.

Chief Glenn Hudson says any death that happens in the community comes as a shock.

He says the police statement confirms rumours that had been swirling around the First Nation since last week when the little girl died.

There have been no reports of an arrest in the case.

The girl was taken to hospital in Hodgson, Man., on July 17 but died later that day.

All child deaths are forwarded by the medical examiner to the Children's Advocate for possible investigation.

Though the death occurred nearly a week ago, the Manitoba government could not yet confirm Wednesday whether the child was in care or had any involvement with social workers.
