LONG BRANCH, N.J. (AP) — Investigators are trying to determine what caused the deaths of a woman and a young child whose bodies were found inside a central New Jersey home.
Monmouth County prosecutors say the bodies were found late Friday afternoon in Long Branch. But they declined to provide further details on the deaths, citing the ongoing investigation.
Neighbors and relatives tell the Asbury Park Press that the victims were a 62-year-old woman and an 11-year-old girl she had raised since the child was an infant.
They say the woman’s adult niece found the bodies around 5 p.m. on the home’s first floor, where the two victims lived.
Autopsies on both victims were scheduled for Saturday.
