All the children have been identified, including 4-month-old Case Futrell and 7-month-old Sydnee Vargyas, who both died from head injuries.

‘‘The ME staff worked throughout the night and yesterday in coordination with state and federal agencies to identify victims and document injuries,’’ medical examiner’s spokesman Amy Elliott said in a statement.

The eight other children ranged in age from 4 years old to 9 years old. Of those, six suffocated and two died from massive injuries.

Officials still are trying to contact the relatives of eight of the victims, she said.
