Baby’s starvation at shelter ruled homicide

A 2-month-old boy died of starvation and dehydration just before Christmas, police said, despite periodic visits from a social worker and while living in a West Philadelphia homeless shelter stocked with food. The boy, Quasir Alexander, had five siblings, including a twin brother, all now in foster care, sources close to the investigation said. Medics found Quasir when they were called to the Travelers Aid family shelter at 111 N. 49th St. about 6 a.m. Dec. 23, police said. It was not clear who called them. The baby, who appeared undernourished, was taken to Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, where he was pronounced dead, police said. An autopsy found he died of starvation and dehydration, and his death was ruled a homicide, said Lt. Raymond Evers, a police spokesman.
