4-year-girl who died was found hanging in closet, sources say
There were no immediate indications that foul play was involved in the incident, according to the sources, who asked not to be named because the investigation was in its preliminary stages.
The girl was taken to a hospital earlier Thursday, where she was pronounced dead. She was found by family members, authorities said.
Detectives from the Los Angeles Police Department's Abused Child Unit were trying to determine how the girl ended up hanging in the closet.
The girl's home was in the 8600 block of Belford Avenue.
