A 1-year-old girl was found dead in South Los Angeles under what is being called "suspicious circumstances."

Los Angeles County sheriff's homicide investigators said the infant was found in the 1300 block of West 105th Street in an incorporated area.

Deputies said they responded to a 911 call Sunday afternoon about a baby not breathing.

"When paramedics arrived on scene, they found a female 1-year-old that was not breathing, and she was pronounced dead here at the scene," said Lt. Holly Francisco of the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department.
