Dead baby's name revealed

10:50 am on 29 September 2009

Police have revealed the name of a toddler whose death is being investigated as suspicious.

Hail-Sage McClutchie, aged 22 months, was taken to Waikato Hospital from Morrinsville on Saturday afternoon and died that night.

She had serious injuries but a post-mortem carried out in Auckland on Sunday was unable to establish the cause of death.

Police are waiting on the results of further tests to help determine how she died.

They say it will take several days and are warning people not to draw any conclusions on the cause of death prematurely, until they get the results.
