Fleming baby's death ruled homicide

Kentucky State Police are investigating the death of a 3-month-old Fleming County girl as a murder, but have not named any suspects in the case.

Police have released few details about the death of Kaylee Buchanan, who was brought to University of Kentucky Medical Center on July 20.

She died at the hospital three days later of a head injury, according to the Fayette County coroner's office. Officials contacted state police to conduct a death investigation because Kaylee's death was "not conducive to accidental or natural causes," said Trooper Ralph Lockard of the Morehead state police post.

Family members and others have been interviewed about Kaylee's death, but police don't expect to release more information for three to four weeks, Lockard said.
