BROCKTON, Mass. (AP) — Police in Brockton are investigating after a 13-month-old infant was found in a city motel room snuggling against a dead woman’s body.

Authorities believe the adult died of a drug overdose and do not consider the death suspicious.

The woman’s body was found by emergency crews at a Super 8 at about 1:45 p.m. Sunday.

Police said the infant was found cuddled up against the body.

The infant was taken to the hospital for evaluation and was described as in good condition.

No names were released and authorities did not disclose the relationship between the child and the woman.
