(Buffalo-AP) -- State investigators are awaiting an Oklahoma State Medical Examiners ruling on how a 1-year-old child died.

Oklahoma Medical Examiners Office spokesman Ray Blakeney says coroners don't know how Garrett Baily Rice died.

Toxicology tests have been done to determine if drugs or poisons were in his system.

The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation is looking into the case but spokeswoman Jessica Brown says the agency can't continue its probe until a cause of death has been determined.

Investigators say the child died November 4th while under a baby-sitter's supervision.
