    Philadelphia Police are searching for a couple in connection with the death of a nine-month-old boy who died from heroin and cocaine intoxication.

    Medics were called to a home on North 7th Street in Philadelphia in July of 2011 for reports of an infant not breathing, according to investigators. Milton Galarza-Rojas was transported to St. Christopher's Hospital where he died a short time later.

    The Medical Examiner's Office recently received the results of toxicology tests and ruled Galarza-Rojas' death a homicide.

    Arrest warrants have been issued for the child's aunt, Viameri Santana-Berrious, 27, and her boyfriend Oscar Rivera, 34.

    Anyone with information about Rivera or Santana-Berrious' whereabouts should contact the Philadelphia Police Homicide Unit.
