SPRINGFIELD, Ore. - An autopsy has been performed on the 18-month-old boy who died in foster care at a Springfield home, Springfield Police said.

The boy's cause of death has not yet been determined. Investigators are still waiting on toxicology results, which could take a while.

Springfield Police say such an investigation into the death of a child under the age of 2 is routine.

Officers responded last Thursday morning to the home and found the child dead.
