Kentucky State Police are investigating the Dec. 23, 2010, death of 4-year-old Cameron Bryce Mullins of Salyersville, Trooper Shaun Little said Thursday.
Little said he had no additional information on the death, but Magoffin County Deputy Coroner Brian Parker said Thursday that the death has been ruled a homicide.
Jennifer Brislin, a spokeswoman for the state medical examiner's office, said the autopsy report for Cameron Bryce Mullins is exempt from public disclosure at this point because of the ongoing death investigation.
Cameron's obituary in the Salyersville Independent newspaper identified his parents as James "Jimmy" Garcia and Jessica Mullins. They could not be immediately reached for comment on Thursday.
