Alerted by toddler’s cries, police find body of woman who died days ago

Police in Afula have found a three-year-old girl in an apartment alongside the body of her mother, who apparently died of natural causes several days ago.

Police were called to the scene after neighbors heard the toddler’s cries and relatives reported the woman missing. They broke down the door to find the girl next to the decomposing body of her mother, who is said to have been in her 40s but is not immediately identified.

She appears to have died several days ago. Foul play is not suspected.
