The funeral for a 1-year-old Detroit girl who was found dead inside a closet at her grandmother's house is scheduled for Monday as a police investigation continues.

So far, authorities haven't disclosed the cause of the death Friday of Zyia Turner.

Trinity Chapel Funeral Home in Detroit says Zyia's funeral is at 11 a.m. Monday at Christ Resurrection Missionary Baptist Church in Detroit. Visitation is 2-7 p.m. Sunday at the funeral home.

The Detroit Free Press says results of an autopsy by the Wayne County medical examiner's office are pending.

Zyia's father Emmanuel Turner says his brother was watching several children Friday and reported Zyia missing. A police dog found the body in the closet several hours later.
