ST. LOUIS (KPLR) – Homicide detectives with the St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department are investigating the death of a four-month-old girl due to allegations of chronic abuse by her parents.

According to the St. Louis Medical Examiner's Office, a coroner ruled the death of Dorian Whitlock was the result of abuse. The child died Tuesday.
