BROOKLYN - The death of a 3-year-old girl in Bushwick over the summer has been ruled a homicide.

The medical examiner says Tiana Mills died of hypothermia brought on by dehydration and malnourishment.

Police found the little girl unresponsive inside a Decatur Street apartment on June 25. She was taken to the hospital and later died.

Authorities say that so far there have been no arrests in the case.

News 12 reached out to the city's Administration for Children's Services, but it would not comment on whether its workers had a connection with Mills' family prior to her death.

A spokesperson for ACS did release a statement saying, "It is our mission to protect, support and promote the well-being of our city's children, and when we confront a tragedy like this, we work to ensure that no stone is left unturned."
