     We have an update in the investigation into the death of a two-year-old foster child last week.           According to an incident report from the Catoosa County Sheriff's Office, the foster mother Clara Edwards said two-year-old Sahara Palmer fell down a staircase last Monday.
     She told a deputy Sahara dropped a ball at the top of the stairs, then slid down trying to retrieve it and hit her head on the floor.
     Edwards said the two-year-old cried, but then stopped.
     A few hours later, Edwards said Sahara fell again and hit her head on a wooden wardrobe case and became unconscious.
     She says she shook her but she wouldn't respond.
     That's when Edwards said she and her husband took the child to the hospital where she died two days after being declared brain dead.
     The Catoosa County Sheriff's office and G-B-I are still investigating the incident.
