Investigators today confirmed that the suspect is the victim’s father. It will take longer to confirm other aspects of the case — autopsy and toxicology reports on the girl’s death may not come back for more than a month.

Deputies responding to a home on Lance Drive just outside the town of Floyd Wednesday night found the two-year-old dead.  They won’t say how she died, but they’ve charged Eder Rodriguez-Guzman with capital murder because he’s over 20 and the victim was younger than 14.
