UPDATE: Baby found not breathing at west side Madison home has died

MADISON (WKOW) -- The Dane County Coroner's Office has identified the baby who died Tuesday at an unlicensed daycare.

Police say 6-week-old Brayden K. Weber of Belleville did not have trauma or injuries found during the autopsy. The cause of death is pending toxicology and autopsy results.


MADISON (WKOW) -- Madison Police say the baby found not breathing at a west side Madison home Tuesday morning has died.

Police say emergency crews arrived at the home on Tucson Trail just before 10 a.m. for a report of an infant having a medical emergency.

Crews rushed the baby to a local hospital and was later pronounced dead.

The Madison Police Department is working with the Dane County Coroner's office on this death investigation.

"All of a sudden, there were sirens and fire trucks and a bunch of cops pulled up," said neighbor Mike Welch, who tells WKOW that the house's owner, Nancy Gille, had been running  daycare center for about six kids a day.

The state says Gille was not licensed.  She had a license from 2001 to 2006, but then voluntarily gave it up.  The Dept. of Children and Families says it ordered Gille to stop running another unlicensed facility in 2007.

Madison Police are investigating the infant's death.  Police would not reveal the baby's gender.  They also say Gille is not under arrest.
