LAS VEGAS -- A one-year-old child who was rushed to a hospital May 19 in critical condition died Monday, according to Child Protective Services.

The baby was rushed to University Medical Center's pediatrics unit from a home on Tenaya Way near Sahara Avenue.

A Child Protective Services report said the caregiver's story didn't match the baby's injuries.

Both CPS and Metro Police's Abuse and Neglect Unit are looking into the case and said they have a person of interest.

CPS also said another relative was taken from the home on Sunday.

The caregiver, identified Wednesday as Bransen Locks, 36, had been reported to child protection authorities on two other occasions. He was cleared of the charges both times.

Locks was arrested for unrelated charges when police contacted him during the investigation.

This remains an open and active investigation. Cause and manner of death as well as identity of the victim will be released by the Clark County Coroner's Office. Anyone with information about this incident is urged to contact Metro's Crimes Against Youth and Family Section at 702-828-3421 or to remain anonymous, contact Crime Stoppers at 702-385-5555.
