ROY, Utah — A search warrant affidavit obtained Wednesday shows new details about the investigation into the death of a 22-month-old Roy girl.

On October 12, officers from the Roy City Police Department responded to a home near 5000 S 3100 W after receiving a report of an unconscious child. According to the affidavit, the girl was taken by helicopter to Primary Children’s Hospital.

Doctors told police the girl had suffered a serious brain injury, bruises on her neck that appeared to be the result of strangulation, bite marks on her cheeks and other injuries. Her injuries, police were told, were “non accidental trauma.”  The girl died at the hospital on October 13, a news release from Roy PD said.

After the search warrant was authorized, police seized dozens of items including cellphones, bedding, clothing, diapers, medications and tissues. Police also took DNA swabs, hand tracings, photographs, hair samples, blood samples and two Code R (reverse rape) kits.

A representative for the police department said Wednesday that they have not made any arrests in the case and they are not naming any suspects at this time. Given that no one has been arrested and no suspects have been named, FOX 13 will not identify the people mentioned in the search warrant.

Police are continuing to review evidence and interview witnesses as they wait for the results of forensic reports.  Watch FOX 13 News and for updates.
