MARNE, Mich.(WOOD)- Cheyenne Hendershot was a happy young girl -- full of life and energy.

On Sunday morning, a family member said, she was found dead.

Ottawa County investigators were on the scene in the 16000 block of 24th Avenue until Sunday afternoon but released few details about the situation, only confirming it was a death investigation.

Cheyenne's sister, Raven, said the little girl was treated at a local medical center the night before, after she had shoulder pain and a fever. Staff at the center told the family Cheyenne had a sprained shoulder and she was released with medicine to help with the pain.

Hours later, investigators and paramedics responded and pronounced the girl dead at her home.

"Cheyenne was a sweet girl. She loved to come over and play with my daughter," said Melany Cochran, who lives next door to the Hendershots. "I can't believe I'm not gonna hear her yell for my daughter to come over and play with her."

Although family members have no indication of how Cheyenne died, they said she had asthma and recently underwent a surgical procedure to remove her tonsils.

"She just took medicine and just didn't wake up," Cochran said.

Family members said Cheyenne's mother was on her way into town when the incident happened.

"(Cheyenne's) favorite thing was to play with her best friend Leah and ride her bike and eat ice cream and cake," Cochran said.

Hendershot was a student at Coopersville Elementary School.

The medical examiner was being called to the scene, Ottawa County investigators said.

An autopsy will likely be performed on Cheyenne's body to determine an exact cause of death.

she recently had a tonsillectomy; he death will likely be ruled related to that...there was a report a while back about children dying after tonsillectomies

And to whoever gave me a "Clueless" judge it for posting this thread, I hope you NEVER experience the death of a child.

But Rval...I know it's from you, simply because you saw a thread was started by "pfromd". It shows you have no respect for ANYONE...period.

Amaze us all and post to this thread as well, as little-twit, Meagan, Tommy Boy, other people's children, dead parents, their addresses, or your other cast of thousands...like you've been doing for the past 2 years. It is then I will wish you all the harm that comes your way. You are one sick pedophile.

Sympathies to the Hendershot family.

Ignore it. Grow up and stop stooping to her level, real or imagined. Especially on a thread like this.

It may have been due to the medicine given to her. Some kids with asthma interact with medications in a deadly way.

Nevertheless, sympathies to this family.
