Investigation launched after suspicious death of 3-year-old girl

(WOIO) - An investigation is underway after the suspicious death of a 3-year-old girl.

Little Makayla Jones was at her mother's home on Iowa Place in Barberton on Sunday, Father's Day. At approximately 9PM, the child was admitted to Children's Hospital Medical Center with suspicious injuries.

Makayla died at the hospital Wednesday afternoon.

"It's a big shock. A big shock," said neighbor Heather Evans. "I didn't think anything would happen to her kids. She is just an all around good person."

An autopsy was completed on Makayla Jones Thursday afternoon. The cause and manner of death are pending further investigation.

So far, no charges have been filed and nobody has been arrested.
