The death of a 2-year-old Bucksport girl who died in October has been determined to be a homicide, authorities said.

The death of Kloe Hawksley has been under investigation since Oct. 18, when local police responded to a call reporting an unresponsive child inside a home at 264 Central St., Lt. Troy Gardner said. Hawksley was declared dead at the scene.

The results of an autopsy performed by the state medical examiner’s office the next day, as well as the two-month investigation by the Maine State Police Major Crimes Unit, have led police to determine her death was a homicide.

Gardner would not comment on the cause of death. He did not identify the two adults and one other child who also were found in the home when police were called.

No one answered the door at the Central Street trailer on Wednesday afternoon. A car carrying two women and boy pulled up, but the driver declined to comment.

Police are still investigating Hawksley’s death and have not named a suspect.
