The community paid their respects to a three-month-old girl who died a week after being hospitalized with injuries consistent with abuse.

A candlelight vigil was held outside the 2115 Honeywell Avenue home of Sherlin Camacho on Tuesday, January 17, the day after she died at Montefiore Children’s Hospital.

According to published reports, police discovered the girl inside her home on Tuesday, January 10 in cardiac arrest and with several injuries including a fractured spine, bruised femur and broken rib.

The medical examiner officially ruled the infant’s death a homicide on Wednesday, January 18.

The family’s lawyer stated Camacho’s parents do not have a history with the NYC Administration for Children’s Services, but they in addition to a baby sitter and renter in the home have been questioned by law enforcement.

No suspects have yet been named.
