MILWAUKEE (WTAQ) - Authorities are investigating the death of another baby in Milwaukee who was co-sleeping with her mother.  

Two-month-old Alexandria Platt was unresponsive when rescuers arrived at her family's apartment early Monday morning. 

The Milwaukee County medical examiner's office said the girl's mother breast-fed her baby late Sunday night, and then the two fell asleep on the mother's bed -- even though the baby had a crib close by. 

An autopsy Monday revealed no signs of trauma to the infant. The cause of death won't be known until toxicology test results are determined in a few weeks. 

Investigators found no evidence of illegal drugs or alcohol in the mother or child. 

The death is the 16th this year in which a Milwaukee infant was apparently placed in an unsafe sleeping environment.
