The Fayette County coroner has released the name of a three-year-old girl found dead in her Lexington home and said she died of suffocation.
The coroner said earlier Thursday that Kylee Mills Simmerman showed no outward signs of trauma when she was found unresponsive in her home on Graviss Court by a Lexington firefighter.
Police say the girl went missing for about 30 minutes Wednesday afternoon. Police say a relative of the girl called authorities. Not long after that, the girl was found unconscious and unresponsive by firefighters and rushed to UK Hospital, where she was pronounced dead.
The autopsy report said the girl died of Asphyxia/Suffocation. It said the investigation into the death is ongoing.
