Baby girl being cared for by mother's boyfriend at Orange Park hotel

ORANGE PARK, Fla. – The Clay County Sheriff's Office said an autopsy will determine the cause of death of 9-month-old Charli May Lee, who was hospitalized Thursday night after she was found unresponsive at a Orange Park hotel.

Detectives were called around 7:30 p.m. Thursday to the InTown Suites in Orange Park. 

Investigators said the baby girl was transported to Orange Park Medical Center, where she later died. The cause of death is pending an autopsy at the Jacksonville Medical Examiner’s office. 

The infant, along with a 2-year-old sister, were in their room being cared for by Mathew Hamrysky, 26, the mother’s boyfriend, at the hotel at 442 Blanding Blvd., where they lived. Police said the mother was at work at the time.

Homicide detectives worked through the night interviewing all those involved. The Florida Department of Children and Families place the 2-year-old sister in the home of a relative.

No arrests have been made and no one is in custody.

Collier Daily, vice president of sales and marketing for the hotel chain, issued a statement: "We are working with Clay County officials to assist in their investigation as needed. As this matter is ongoing, we defer any further questions to the Clay County Sheriff’s Department.”

The girl's aunt has posted a GoFundMe account to help the family with funeral expenses.
