Cherokee Sheriff's Office Investigates Death Of Baby

The baby passed away on Sunday at a home near Woodstock.

Autopsy results are pending in the death of a 17-month-old baby who passed away at a home near Woodstock.

According to 11 Alive, the Cherokee County Sheriff's Office is investigating the death of Kaylee Rayne Johnson, who was found unresponsive around 1 a.m. Sunday at a home on Red Bird Way. Cherokee County Sheriff's Office Lt. Jay Baker said no charges have yet to be filed in the case.

The home, located off Highway 92 near its intersection with Bells Ferry Road, is that of Kaylee's father, Michael John Naples, 30, according to an incident report released by the sheriff's office. 

The child's mother, Jaimie Nakail Beck, 22, of Euharlee, reportedly told deputies she woke up to get a glass of water and discovered her child unresponsive at the bottom of the basement stairs. Lt. Baker said the mother told investigators "they discovered the door to basement ajar" before finding Kaylee.

The child was transported to WellStar Kennestone Hospital in Marietta and then flown to Children's Healthcare of Atlanta at Scottish Rite. She was placed on life support at Scottish Rite, but later passed away on Tuesday.

The Georgia Bureau of Investigation completed an autopsy on Kaylee on Wednesday, but Cherokee County Coroner Earl Darby said results are "pending," as he's waiting on other test results to return before releasing the findings.
