The Chester County Coroner’s Office has identified the 2-year-old girl who died Wednesday in Chester.

The toddler was Khloe Simone Adams, Chester County Coroner Terry Tinker said.

The cause of death has not been released. The autopsy is still pending, Tinker said.

Tinker said results may not be available for a few weeks.

Chester County Emergency services responded to a home on White Oak Street in Chester just before 8:30 a.m., Chester police said.

Adams was transported to Chester Regional Medical Center, where she was pronounced dead, police said in a statement.

A neighbor, Erica Foote, said she lives in the house behind the home where Adams was staying.

“She was just a sweet girl,” Foote said. “She was happy yesterday. We went trick-or-treating.”

Chester Police Interim Chief Travis Moore thanked the Chester County Coroner’s Office and the South Carolina SLED for assistance in the case in a statement Wednesday.

The case is still under investigation.
