NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

The sudden death of a toddler has a family grieving and authorities wondering whether it might be a crime.

Metro police identified the 17-month-old girl as Eloise Costanza and said officers responded to a home Sunday on Spring Creek Drive after the child was transported to Vanderbilt Children's Hospital by ambulance.

Family members said Eloise had skull, neck and rib injuries, and police said she died Monday night.

Authorities won't confirm much about what led up to the little girl's death, but police said ambulance personnel and hospital medical staff were concerned the girl's injuries were seemingly inconsistent with an accident.

A family member said Eloise's mother left the baby in the care of someone else to go to work on Sunday, only to get a call a short time later telling her the baby wasn't breathing.

Family members said Eloise was a happy child, full of life and energy, and her death had many friends and family sending well-wishes and messages of support on Twitter and Facebook throughout the day Tuesday.

For now, there have been no arrests or charges, but Channel 4 News will continue to follow the story as it continues to develop.
