KINGMAN, Ariz. — The Mohave County Medical Examiner has determined that an infant’s death was caused by an accidental bathtub drowning.

The sheriff’s office said Wednesday the investigation shows no signs of foul play. Sheriff’s detectives were called out Sunday afternoon to a residence in Valle Vista north of Kingman after an 8-month-old boy was reported unresponsive.

After deputies arrived, they were told the boy was transported to Kingman Regional Medical Center where he later died.

It was learned that Hualapai Tribal Foster Care System placed the boy with foster parents. The case will be forwarded to the Mohave County Attorney’s Office for final review.
