Whatever caused the death of a two-year-old Canyon Country boy Monday will not be revealed for another six weeks, a spokesman for the Los Angeles County Cornoner's Office said today.

"Not all the tests have been completed and it will be about six weeks before we have a determination as to a cause of death," Captain Ed Winter told The Signal Thursday morning.

Doctors have finished their autopsy on the body of 23-month-old Jack Roscoe Winchester.

On Monday afternoon, a woman identified as the mother of deceased toddler returned from shopping with her three children. The two older children entered the family home with the mother.

After "a considerable amount of time," had passed, according to Lt. Dave Dolson of the county sheriff's Homicide Bureau, the mother found her youngest child dead in the car seat of the family's minivan.

Winter told The Signal that test results for histopathology, neuropathology and toxciology tests normally take about six weeks to complete.
