Baby Beaten To Death At DC Hotel Operating As Homeless Shelter

Authorities are asking for the public’s help to find the person or persons responsible for beating an 11-month-old baby girl to death at a hotel running as a homeless shelter in Northeast D.C., officials said.

Officers were called to a hospital on Thursday afternoon after they were told an unconscious infant with life-threatening injuries was brought there by her parents, police said.

The baby, identified as Mackenzie Anderson, was pronounced dead by medical personnel despite several life-saving efforts, police said.

Police learned that the baby’s death happened in the 1600 block of New York Avenue Northeast — a hotel running as a homeless shelter, police said.

Results from an autopsy on Mackenzie’s body revealed she suffered blunt force trauma to the head that was inflicted by another person, officials said.

Mackenzie’s death was ruled a homicide, police said.

The details leading up to her death are unclear, but police said they believe that the girl’s death was not a random act of violence.

A person of interest or suspect involved in this incident has not yet been identified. Detectives continue to investigate the death.

The police department is offering a $25,000 reward to anyone that can provide information that will lead to the arrest of the person responsible for this crime.
