The cries of an infant led neighbors and police to the horrific discovery of a dead young woman inside a South Richmond Hill home on Saturday afternoon — and two children were found alive but unattended, it was reported.
The 25-year-old woman’s death is now being investigated as a possible suicide, police sources said.
Officers from the 102nd Precinct and EMS units were called to the residence at 95-18 133rd St. at about 2:37 p.m. on Dec. 5.
According to sources, first responders came to the scene based on a 911 call from a neighbor who reported hearing a baby crying from inside the apartment.
Upon gaining entry into the residence, officers and medical technicians found a 25-year-old woman unconscious and unresponsive. She was later pronounced dead.
Also inside the residence, first responders found two young children, ages 1 and 4. Sources said they were alert and brought to Jamaica Hospital for observation.
The investigation is ongoing.
