Jackson police are investigating the death of yet another young child in the capital city.

14 month-old Alana Truss died Sunday. The Hinds county coroner says she died of a head injury. The family says she fell in a bathtub.

The coroner says at this time there is no suspicion of foul play.

Truss is the 4th child under four to die in Jackson in less than two weeks.

Four year old Dylan Jackson was shot and killed at a birthday party on Vine street July 19th. Three days later three year old Tony Evans was mauled to death by a neighbors pitbull, and Monday, three year old Tyric Robinson was fatally shot at the Shell gas station on Daniel Lake Boulevard.

No charges have been filed in any of those cases.
