REDDING, Calif. -

A 21-month-old child from Redding was admitted to UC Davis Medical Center in Sacramento on Feb. 28. After the toddler's death on Mar. 4, the death has been labeled as suspicious and has led to an investigation by Redding Police.

Sacramento Police labeled the case as a "possible child abuse case" in their logs.

Many details of the investigation have not been released by Redding Police but Secret Witness tells us that the child was admitted for major injuries to the head and internal organs.

The cause of death, the name of the victim and the nature of the investigation are not being released at this time.

Redding Police said they would be releasing more information later in the week.
