The death of the 17-month-old boy who was badly beaten last week has been ruled a homicide.

The Jefferson County Coroner's Office says Antoine Dixon Jr. died of blunt force trauma to multiple parts of his body. 

The toddler was brought to Kosair Hospital with injuries last Wednesday and died Sunday night after he was taken off life support. 

The Louisville Metro Police Department says they're investigating.

 “We're talking to day care workers, parents and family, any witnesses that were there at that point,” said Dwight Mitchell, LMPD Spokesperson.

Day care workers found the boy unresponsive last Wednesday afternoon and called authorities.

No one has been charged at this time.
