'We haven't ruled out murder': Police investigating death of Indiana toddler

The chief cop whose officers are investigating the shocking death of an Indiana toddler who fell 150ft from a cruise ship has told the news that he has not ruled out murder.
Tragic Chloe Wiegand is thought to have slipped out of her grandfather's hands before plunging through an open window and over the side of a Royal Caribbean vessel as it prepared to depart Puerto Rico on Sunday.
But Sgt Jose D. Sanchez, acting head of the San Juan Police Department's Homicide Division, told the news that it was premature to declare the incident an accident.
'There are various possibilities. It could be a homicide. It could be a murder. It could be an accident,' he said during an exclusive interview on Monday evening at police headquarters.
'We are currently in the very early stages of the investigation. We haven't ruled out any possibility.
'We are doing a professional, thorough investigation into the events to explain the death of this little girl. As police officers our duty lies with the victim.'  
Meanwhile the Wiegands are blaming Chloe's death on the liner, saying she died by falling through a window which had been left open in the kids' play area.
