Coroner finds no definitive cause of death in autopsy of 9-week-old

An autopsy on a 9-week-old Finley girl found no unusual findings but also no definitive cause of death, said Benton County Coroner John Hansens.

Briana Velazquez was found dead early Wednesday at her home on Game Farm Road. She had lived at the home with her mother, Jennifer Velazquez, for three weeks. Briana was born in San Jose, Calif.

The infant was sleeping in a bed with at least one other adult, Hansens said. An autopsy was completed Friday by Daniel Selove, a forensic pathologist from Everett. Toxicology tests are pending.
