/ Source: WEEK-TV

Police are now investigating the death of a Lincoln toddler as a homicide.

Two–year–old Lucas T. Alberts died Monday afternoon at the Children's Hospital of Illinois in Peoria. He was transferred there on Sunday.

His mother Jody Alberts and her friend Ty Cline originally took the child in their own vehicle to Lincoln Hospital.

Peoria County Coroner Johnna Ingersoll says the little boy died from head injuries consistent with non–accidental trauma.

Police have yet to make an arrest.
