Police are investigating after a 36-year-old woman and 4-year-old child were found dead in an apartment in Upper Manhattan Monday morning, reports CBS New York.

The 36-year-old woman, identified by police sources as Felicia Barahona, was found dead in the living room of an apartment on shortly after 8 a.m. She had an electrical cord around her neck.

A 4-year-old boy was found dead in the apartment’s bathtub. Police have not said if the boy and Barahona were related.

Police were called to the scene after the superintendent of the building smelled a foul odor and looked through the fire escape into the apartment, where he saw the woman’s body.

The two bodies were removed from the building and were taken to the city morgue. A medical examiner will determine the cause of death.
