Detroit — Police are still reviewing the death of a 1-year-old girl who drowned in the flooded basement of a home last week.

Candles were lit on the front porch of the home Tuesday afternoon in remembrance of Ca’mya Davis, who police say fell through a hole on the ground level of a house in the 15000 block of Ferguson Friday night into the basement filled with standing water.

The baby was unsupervised at the time of the fall, police said. She was rushed to the hospital, but died. The cause of death was drowning, according to the medical examiner.

Maria Miller, a spokesperson for the Wayne County Prosecutor's Office, said Tuesday afternoon that her office had not received a warrant request on the case. 

No one was home Tuesday afternoon at the bungalow, near Greenfield and Grand River where purple and white balloons decorated the porch. The dilapidated home is in tax foreclosure, with the owner owing more than $2,800 in debt. It doesn't appear to be owned by a landlord. It had wooden boards and trash bags covering many of the missing windows and trash littered the driveway.
