Posted By: Channel 8 Eyewitness News


A 21-year-old Bellevue man has been arrested on suspicion of causing the death of his 5-month-old daughter.

Police say Cameron Ludi was arrested Tuesday night on suspicion of child abuse resulting in death.

Bellevue police say an autopsy and investigation into the July 3 death of his infant daughter, Cassidy Kennedy, showed the baby girl died from blunt force trauma to the head.

Ludi told police at the time of the baby’s death that she had fallen off a bed where he had placed her before going outside to smoke. He told police that when he returned, he found the baby face down on the floor.

Ludi remained jailed Wednesday and could not be reached for comment. Online court records do not indicate whether Ludi had an attorney Wednesday.
