A 10-month-old boy found dead inside his southwest valley home last year died from natural causes, according to the Clark County coroner’s office.
Michael Taulanga’s mother called police on Sept. 7 after she discovered the boy was not breathing. Las Vegas abuse and neglect detectives investigated the boy’s death, which is standard protocol when a child dies, police said.
Taulanga died from parainfluenza pneumonia, a respiratory virus. The coroner ruled his death was natural.
