On Sunday, while hanging out in the freezing emergency room, I took a break to warm up outside near the ambulance bay. I saw several police cars around an ambulance that hadn't been there before. I wondered if there'd been a dramatic moment in the ER and that somehow I'd missed it.

Not long after, a "Crime Scene Investigation" vehicle pulled up. The officer got out carrying a camera. She went into the children's ER. I thought, Oh, that's not good.

Yesterday I read that the child, a two-year-old girl, died.

Today I read it was homicide.
