Authorities investigate death of 13-year-old girl

May 21, 2019

LAWRENCE, Mass. (AP) — Authorities in Massachusetts are investigating the death of a 13-year-old girl.

A spokeswoman for the Essex district attorney says the girl was already dead when she was brought to the Lawrence General Hospital emergency room just before 5 p.m. Monday.

The girl was from Amesbury but her name was not released because she is a juvenile.

An autopsy is scheduled for Tuesday, but Essex district attorney spokeswoman Carrie Kimball-Monahan says it may take some time before there is a ruling on the cause and manner of death.

There have been no arrests.

Lawrence Police Chief Roy Vasque tells The Eagle-Tribune the hospital called police to notify them of the death.
