    URBANDALE, Iowa (AP) Police have closed an investigation into the death of a 13-month-old girl found dead at an in-home day care in the Des Moines suburb of Urbandale.

    A news release sent Thursday by the Urbandale Police Department says nothing was found in toxicology tests performed on the body of Emma Bright. An autopsy found no evidence of blunt force trauma.

    The department says there is no evidence to pursue criminal charges against anyone.

    Emergency crews had been called to the day care on May 25 to help a child who wasn't breathing. The girl died at the scene.
