The death of a 4 month old at an unlicensed daycare facility has been ruled a homicide, according to police in Fairfield, Connecticut.  The death was originally ruled an accident, but the state medical examiner found high levels of Benadryl in the infant's system.  It has been decided that the baby died of acute diphenhydramine intoxication.  The daycare was immediately shut down after the death, and not charges have been filed since the investigation is ongoing.
