[UPDATE] 17-Month-Old Girl Sent to Hospital With Cold, Found To Have Broken Wrists



[UPDATE]  New information has come out in this investigation.  Shreveport Police Corporal Marcus Hines tells KEEL News the little girl was actually brought to the hospital with a cold, when doctors noticed the wrist bruising and discovered that both the girl’s wrists were broken.  But he’s not saying right now whether the injuries were actually inconsistent with a fall.

“I cannot verify that with any degree of certainty,” Hines says.  “Someone did mention that, but not having seen that in writing, I don’t want to make that official statement.”  He stresses that detectives are very early on in their investigation, and will update us if any arrests are made — or when more information becomes available.
