Local media outlets have identified the female victim as 43-year-old Erika Tomassian.

HUFFINGTON POST – A 2-year-old boy had to fend for himself for days after his mother and baby brother died inside their Hollywood apartment, according to police.

The Los Angeles Police Department was called to the home of a 43-year-old woman on Monday, after a man reported hearing a child’s screams coming from inside the second-floor apartment.

First responders reportedly made the horrific discovery when they stepped inside.

“The fire department came in and found the 2-year-old child crying and the bodies of a 1-year-old boy and an adult female,” LAPD spokeswoman Liliana Preciado told The Huffington Post.

The woman’s body was found on the floor and the deceased child was found seated next to her, strapped into a feeding chair, police said.

According to Preciado, a preliminary investigation indicates the 1-year-old “was being fed when the female appears to have collapsed and [then] the child suffocated with food.”

  1. What the devil dose god have to do with that ?my word I'm so fed up of you people constantly going on about God for goodness sake that God story is boring move on!!!!

  2. Again we see that we have to live our lives like it is our last: worship JEHOVAH, allow HIM to lead us, moment by moment...

    A change of lifestyle, if that is what is needed.

    Repent and accept JEHOVAH, get baptized, and live for HIM; if that is what is needed.

    JESUS says "If you love ME, keep MY Commandments." JOHN 14: 15.

    Please be obedient to JEHOVAH!

    Who is next!

  3. Oh my God... This is so heartbreaking ????.... ????????.... How sad and unfortunate
