Toddler who died at daycare identified

State police say the boy who died while taking a nap at the daycare, had been recently sick. 

RAYMOND, Maine (NEWS CENTER) — Maine State Police say a toddler who died at a daycare in Raymond Tuesday had been ill for several weeks with ear infections.

16-month-old Travis Weston was put down for a nap in a crib late Tuesday morning at Peek-A-Roo Day Care Center, according to state police. He was found unresponsive around 2:30 p.m. Family members' attempts to revive him were unsuccessful.

State police say the death is not considered suspicious.

Weston was the foster child of the daycare's owner, Teresa Sadak, and her husband Kent.

State police say the toddler was placed at the center as a foster child on March 2 by the Maine Department of Health and Human Services.

An autopsy was performed Wednesday and the cause of death will be determined upon additional testing, according to the State Medical Examiner's Office.

Officials say the foster parents are cooperating with investigators.

It is standard practice for Maine State Police to investigate the death of any child under the age of three.
