The death of a newborn girl, who died after being abandoned in freezing temperatures on the steps of a Northeast home in January, has been ruled a homicide, according to the District's medical examiner.
The D.C. medical examiner's office is "at a loss" to explain why a professional association declined to renew the office's accreditation, while questions remain about the potential impact on law enforcement initiatives and perceptions in the courtroom, city officials said.
While Dr. Pierre-Louis' lack of certification was a Phase II deficiency, Ms. Fields said inspectors told city officials it was more like a Phase I issue considering her leadership skills.
Beverly Fields, chief of staff for Dr. Pierre-Louis, said the accreditation process is a good way to ensure sound policies and procedures but not a reflection on the office's work.
