3 children found dead inside East Los Angeles apartment

Three children under the ages of 3 were found dead under suspicious circumstances inside of an East Los Angeles apartment on Monday — and their 28-year-old mother is being questioned, authorities said.

The children, two boys and a girl, were discovered by a relative inside a bedroom of their home at about 12:45 p.m., according to Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Lt. Chuck Calderaro.

The family member called 911, but first responders were unable to revive the children and they were pronounced dead on scene, authorities said.

Other people were also inside the home at the time, and they too will be interviewed, authorities said.

Calderaro said there were “no obvious signs” to indicate how the deaths occured.

He added that autopsies will be conducted to determine the causes of death.

According to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, there are no previous reports of abuse or child neglect at the home.
