Toddler's death at illegal daycare under investigation

Police are investigating the death of a 9-month-old boy who died while under the care of a daycare.

Dacion Steptoe Jr. was rushed to a Cook Children’s Hospital in Fort Worth on Thursday after a daycare worker reported that he was having difficulty breathing.

The daycare, located in the 6700 block of Woodbridge Dr., is now being investigated by the state. Child Protective Services says the address is not a licensed daycare and considers it an illegal daycare operation.

It remains unclear what led to Dacion’s death, but no charges have been filed at this time.
