KANSAS CITY, Mo. — A 2-year-old girl’s death two days before Christmas has been ruled a homicide.

Kansas City, Missouri, police said Friday that there were now officially 150 homicides in 2019 after Stevie L. Osborn’s death was ruled a homicide last month.

Emergency responders were called to the 7900 block of North Flintlock Road around 8:41 a.m. on Dec. 23, 2019, for a medical emergency.

Osborn was found unresponsive inside a unit at the Wild Oak Apartment Homes. She was transported to the hospital, where she died from her injuries.

According to KCPD, the autopsy determined that homicide was the cause of death in a ruling issued Feb. 20.

Police said a subject of interest has been identified and detectives aren’t looking for additional suspects, but there have been no arrests made nor charges filed at this time.

KCPD is still investigating Osborn’s case “in the hopes of submitting a case file to the (Clay County) prosecutor for consideration of charges,” according to a KCPD statement.
