The Galveston County Medical Examiner’s Office was attempting Tuesday to determine what caused the death of a 3-year-old girl on Oct. 19 in Galveston.

Officers responding to a welfare concern in the 3900 block of Avenue S about 9:30 p.m. found Malani Allen unresponsive, police said. She was transported to a University of Texas Medical Branch hospital, where she was pronounced dead, police said.

Child Protective Services also is involved in the investigation, police said.

The medical examiner’s office by Tuesday afternoon had not determined what caused the child’s death, a spokesman said.
