(LAFAYETTE) - Police in Lafayette are investigating the death of a 14-month-old girl as a homicide.

Skylar Foster suffered a traumatic head injury on July 21. When emergency responders arrived at the Lafayette home that day, they found her unresponsive. She was taken to St. Elizabeth East Hospital and then airlifted to Riley Hospital for Children at IU Health in Indianapolis. She was taken off life support on July 22.

The Marion County Coroner's Office ruled her death a homicide and said Skylar died from blunt force trauma to the head.

She was laid to rest Monday. Her family asked mourners to donate stuffed toys so they could be sent to Riley Hospital, the Lafayette Police Department and Child Protective Services to comfort children in times of need.

Lafayette police said the case is an active investigation.
