EL PASO, Texas (AP) - Police are investigating the death of a 3-year-old girl found dead in a car trunk in east El Paso.

The girl, who is not being identified, was found dead about 11 p.m. Monday when police responded to a call for a well-being check at an apartment complex. Her body was found in the trunk of a gold-colored Dodge Stratus.

Investigators say they are speaking with the girl's mother and stepfather, neither of whom called police Monday. No arrests have been made.

A second child living at the home is in the custody of child protective services, police said.

The investigation is ongoing.
