LAS VEGAS (AP) - Officials from Child Protective Services say they had no reports of problems with a foster family before an apparent murder-suicide in Las Vegas that left a toddler dead.

A notice issued by the state Tuesday offers few other details on the death of 16-month-old Michell Momox-Caselis or her 37-year-old foster father, Joaquin Juarez-Paez.

The father was found dead Sunday morning in the parking lot of an apartment complex on North Jones Boulevard. His wife was searching for the keys to the vehicle when she discovered the toddler dead in her crib.

Coroner’s officials haven’t yet released their causes of death.

Officers say the couple had recently become foster parents for Momox-Caselis and another child. The notice says another “relevant household member” was immediately removed from the home.
