Posted: Updated:

YAKIMA, Wash. -- Detectives are treating the death of a Yakima girl as suspicious. Yakima police found two year old Esmeralda Ramirez unconscious inside a home on the 600 block of N. 7th Street, Monday night.

Police officers said the girl's father called for help when he saw she was having difficulty breathing. The girl was taken to the hospital, but later died.

Detectives did not see visible injuries and don't believe foul play was involved.

They are calling the death "suspicious" until the exact cause of death can be determined.

An autopsy is scheduled for tomorrow morning.
