WESTPORT, Conn. (CBSNewYork) — Police made a grim discovery at a home in Westport on Thursday.

The bodies of a woman and her 7-year-old daughter were found inside.

Police said officers were called to the home on Lyndale Park near the Merritt Parkway for a report of an unresponsive female Thursday afternoon.

Late Friday, the medical examiner told CBS2 the mother died by suicide and the 7-year-old girl’s death was ruled a homicide by drowning.

The girl attended Coleytown Elementary School, where counselors were available for students and parents.
