‘Medical mystery:’ death of healthy baby in Alberta foster home unexplained
EDMONTON — A judge says an Edmonton foster mother did nothing that contributed to the death of a baby in her care four years ago.
Four-month-old Delonna Sullivan was found unresponsive in a bassinet on April 11, 2011, six days after social workers placed her in the foster home.
An autopsy found the infant was healthy and the cause of her death was listed as unexplained.
Provincial court Judge Steven Bilodeau made no recommendations in his fatality inquiry report.
He says the baby had been sleeping in a safe manner and was being properly supervised.
The foster mother testified she had checked on the baby several times and was listening on a monitor.
