The U.S. Army announced Thursday afternoon that its Criminal Investigation Command has completed an 11-month investigation into mysterious baby deaths on Fort Bragg.

The CID says the case is classified as "undetermined," and investigators "did not discover any evidence or information that points to criminality associated with the deaths, or any identifiable common environmental link."

"Our Special Agents opened the review as a precautionary measure to determine if there was anything that we possibly missed or if there could have been some type of common environmental issue that may have contributed to these deaths," said Chris Grey, spokesman for CID. "We found nothing of a criminal nature or a causal environmental link."

The ABC11 Eyewitness News I-Team broke the story of ten baby deaths over a three year period. Three of the infants who died spent time at one specific house on post.

Parents of those babies have said their babies had trouble breathing along with other conditions just before their deaths. The parents wondered if the cause was tainted drywall or some other contaminant.

Army CID says it will reopen the probe if new credible information is discovered.
