LOS ANGELES (AP) —
Police say a toddler’s cry led officers to discover the bodies of his baby brother and their adopted mother inside a Los Angeles apartment.
Police Officer Liliana Preciado says officers went to the apartment in Hollywood Monday afternoon after someone who heard a child’s cry called 911.
There, they found the bodies of a woman and a 1-year-old boy, and a 2-year-old boy suffering from dehydration.
Preciado said investigators were trying to determine how and when the woman and 1-year-old died. She said they have no evidence of foul play.
Lt. John Jenal told reporters the infant was strapped to a high chair and appeared to have choked to death. He said the woman had been hospitalized for chest pains days earlier.
Jenal said the toddler is in stable condition.
