Police find 4-year-old child alone with corpse in Tempe home

Posted: Updated:
TEMPE, Ariz. - Police made a gruesome discovery inside a home Thursday night near Mill and Southern Avenues.

They found a dead woman, along with her 4-year-old autistic child, who had been left alone with the corpse for several days.

Authorities say friends of the woman asked police to check on her after they had not heard from her in days.

When officers went to the house, they found an open sliding glass door and went inside.  They found the woman's body and her child, who was safe and unharmed.

The cause of death is under investigation, but police don't believe anything sinister happened there.

No named have been released in this case.
