MEMPHIS, TN (WMC-TV) - Memphis police continue to investigate the murder of a 19-month-old girl.

Police were dispatched to a home in the 3300 block of Frayser View Drive late Wednesday night after a person reported a baby there was unresponsive. She later died at LeBonheur Children's Medical Center. Hospital officials called police after determining that bruises on the the little girl's body were suspicious.

Thursday afternoon, police said the girl, identified as Shamia Ivory, died as a result of blunt force trauma.

According to a detective, police spent the day searching for the boyfriend of the baby's mother.

Neighbors said they rarely saw anyone at the house, but remember the little girl.

"It's shocking to know that would even go on in your neighborhood," said neighbor Tommy Johnson.

Memphis police are still investigating Ivory's death. No one has been charged.
