The death of a 2-year-old boy on the Northwest Side has now been ruled a homicide.Salvador Sanchez lived in the 5700-block of West Melrose. He died early Friday at Our Lady of the Resurrection Medical Center.

The medical examiner's office says an autopsy determined Sanchez died from multiple injuries and blunt trauma from child abuse.

No one was in custody Saturday night, but the Illinois Department of Children and Family Services says it is investigating an allegation of death by abuse against the live-in boyfriend of the boy's mother.
