Infant who died Monday in Denver is identified

A infant whose death in Denver is being investigated as a homicide has been identified.

Gianna Rosales was taken to Denver Health Medical Center on Monday where she was later pronounced dead.

The Denver Office of the Medical Examiner identified her on Friday. An autopsy has been performed and the cause and manner of her death are pending.

Police, who are investigating her death as a homicide, said there has been no arrest in the ongoing case.

The baby’s father Anthony Rosales told Denver7 he worried his daughter was in danger and contacted several agencies before her death.

“They failed me,” he said.

Rosales says he remembers jumping out of bed at 6 a.m. on Monday, Aug. 3, and rushing to Denver Health after his mother told him something was wrong with his daughter. Rosales says it was the first time he saw his daughter in more than two weeks because her mother, Jolene LaCrue, kept his daughter away.

“They (doctors) told me she was unresponsive and then went into cardiac arrest,” Rosales said.

Rosales says LaCrue brought Gianna to the hospital on Monday. On Tuesday, the parents decided to take their daughter off life support after talking with doctors.
