TERRYTOWN, La. (AP) - Authorities outside New Orleans say a woman has been found lying dead in a pool of blood inside an apartment.

News outlets report Jefferson Parish Sheriff’s Office spokesman Glen Boyd says the woman’s body and her crying 4-year-old son were found in the apartment’s living room Sunday in Terrytown. The woman was pronounced dead at the scene. He says the child wasn’t injured.

Boyd says authorities were alerted by a resident who said she could hear a child’s crying in the adjacent apartment. Authorities say the child couldn’t open the door because it had been locked.

Investigators don’t have a motive or possible suspect.
