Coquitlam RCMP executed a search warrant this weekend at the Shaughnessy Street home where a one-year-old boy died under the supervision of an unlicensed daycare.

The search of the home began Saturday night and by Sunday morning Mounties were seen removing several large items from the home and putting them into police vehicles. All of the items, however, were covered with white blankets which concealed what the objects of interest to investigators were.

Coquitlam RCMP spokeswoman Const. Kristina Biro told The Tri-City News Tuesday after meeting with investigators that more details on the nature of the Mounties' investigation into the child's death would likely be released later in the week.

The one-year-old boy died suddenly at the Rattle-N-Roll Daycare at 1312 Shaughnessy Street near David Avenue on Jan.17.

An autopsy was done within three days of the boy's death but Biro said Tuesday that results from it would likely not be known to police for several weeks yet.
