LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — The Clark County Department of Family Services (CCDFS) is investigating following reports of the death of 2-year-old Caleb Vanne.
According to a public disclosure form from the department, the toddler died March 31 after he was found unresponsive in a bathtub in his family’s home.
On March 30, CCDFS received a report that the boy’s adult caregiver found him unresponsive in the bathtub.
