Police say a southeastern Pennsylvania baby's death this summer was caused by heroin he ingested.
Collingdale police say the July 15 death of Niccolo Varner was the result of acute heroin intoxication. Police and Delaware County prosecutors say the death is under investigation.
Niccolo died after paramedics were called to his home for a report of a child in respiratory distress.
No charges were filed at the time of Varner's death. The boy was at home with his parents, a sibling and a house guest when he was stricken.

Rain arrives for the second half of the work week. Another fall-like blast of cool weather to follow for the weekend.
Scattered showers are possible tonight as a cold front approaches the area. Otherwise, the best chance for rain will be Thursday afternoon and night where we'll see on and off showers and thunderstorms.
Clouds and showers linger though much of Friday. We may still see a passing shower Saturday. Unseasonably cool air returns this weekend where both days only see high temps in the mid 70s with many of us falling into the 50s at night.
