This is so sad.
Brooklyn Mom And Baby Found Dead In Apartment
Prayers go out to their family.
According to The NY Daily News
A 19-year-old Brooklyn man wondering why his twin nieces hadn’t gone to school went to his sister’s apartment Thursday and found her dead body lying atop her newborn son, officials and family members said.
Family members believe Marjorie Lyons, 34, may have died from complications stemming from her recent C-section, but police could not confirm the report Thursday.
An autopsy was scheduled for Friday.
Jerome Guthrie, who lives downstairs from Lyons, said his twin nieces woke him up shortly before 10 a.m. to tell him they were hungry.
He went to his sister’s apartment to ask why the girls weren’t in school and found her corpse sprawled out on the bed.
Her 11-day-old son Preston was lying underneath her, he said.
“Under her I saw a leg, a baby leg,” he said Thursday. “I reached out and pulled him out. He was purple all over. I screamed, ‘Please don’t be dead, please don’t be dead!’ I ran out and found an officer. I couldn’t say nothing. I was crying, crying, crying just ‘Follow me, follow me, follow me.’”
Lyons died at the scene, officials said. Preston died at Brookdale Hospital.
Lyons’ mother, Rosemarie Garrison, said she spoke with her daughter on Wednesday night and Lyons complained of having a fever.
Her father said she was taking Oxycodone for the pain from the C-section.
Neighbors were stunned by the tragedy.
Police say they saw no initial signs of trauma on the bodies of Marjorie Lyons and her newborn, Preston Alexander.
“She was a good girl. She was respectful,” said neighbor Donna Peters. “All you could say about her is that she was a good girl. A good mother.”
This is so sad. R.I.P. to mother and child.
