PHILADELPHIA– Quasir Alexander, a 2-month-old boy has died of starvation and dehydration at a West Philadelphia homeless shelter stocked with food.

Police consider the Dec. 23 death of Quasir Alexander a homicide, but have made no arrests.

Lt. Raymond Evers says it’s not clear how long the baby had been living with his mother, a twin and other siblings at the Travelers Aid family shelter.
