An autopsy was set for today to determine the cause of death of a West Baltimore baby found dead yesterday in her crib.
A city homicide detective said Grace Raney, 2 1/2 months, of the 600 block of Baker St., was pronounced dead shortly after 5 p.m. by the crew of a Fire Department ambulance after her mother, Tammy Wallace, called to report her child was unconscious and cold.
Western District police also responded to the call and began an investigation.
Police said the baby had been dead for two to three hours.
Wallace told police she left the baby in the care of her grandmother while she was at the Wabash District Court.
