A baby who died in the the southeast valley on Friday night has been identified by the Clark County coroner’s office.

Rhylee Brown died at Sunrise Hospital and Medical Center at 7:51 p.m. The official cause and manner of death for 3-month-old Rhylee had not been determined as of Saturday afternoon.

Officers were called to a home near the intersection of Harmon Avenue and Pecos Road just after 7 p.m., police said on Friday.

Afterward, Rhylee was found at home and sent to a hospital, where she later died. She was not with her mother when the car struck her.
