Pine Tree Daycare Criticized in State Report

State investigators aren't officially blaming the Outreach Tabernacle Day Care in Pine Tree for a baby's death, but they are criticizing the facility for not properly laying the baby to sleep in the right position.

It was April 1st that the owner of the daycare on Pine Tree Road found 2 month old Kaitlyn Williams was not breathing in her crib.

EMS tried CPR, but it was too late. Daycare administrators declined any comment to us today, but agents from the Texas Department of Health and Regulatory Services in an official report, say that daycare workers failed to demonstrate good judgement and improperly laid the infant on her stomach, something that health experts say is a contributing factor in SIDS cases. The investigation is ongoing and police say they don't know what, or if, charges will be filed in the future.
