DETROIT (WWJ/AP) – The funeral for a 1-year-old Detroit girl who was found dead inside a closet at her grandmother’s house is scheduled for Monday as a police investigation continues.
So far, authorities haven’t disclosed the cause of the death Friday of Zyia Turner. The results of an autopsy performed by the Wayne County medical examiner’s office are pending.
Trinity Chapel Funeral Home in Detroit says Zyia’s funeral is at 11 a.m. Monday at Christ Resurrection Missionary Baptist Church in Detroit. Visitation is 2-7 p.m. Sunday at the funeral home.
Zyia’s father Emmanuel Turner said his brother was watching several children Friday at the home neat 7 Mile Road and Conant. He reported Zyia missing. A police dog found the body in the closet several hours later.
There have been no arrests in connection with Zyia’s death. Police said family members have been cooperative.
