Police are seeking the whereabouts of 36-year-old Stephanie Hamburg following an death investigation that has now been deemed a homicide. She is described as being 4’11” tall and weighing approximately 120 pounds.

It was at 5:40 pm on May 10th that police and EMS responded to the 9500-block of Brayton Drive after receiving a report of an unresponsive child. The child, identified as two-year-old Gabriella Marlow, was not breathing when authorities arrived, and she was transported to the hospital where she was later pronounced deceased.
