Child Found Alone In Ore. Home With Woman’s Corpse

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — Police say officers rescued a hungry and thirsty 2-year-old boy from an east Portland house where a woman’s body was found Wednesday.

The Oregon state medical examiner says that 40-year-old Micaela Quinn died of natural causes.

Sgt. Pete Simpson says a friend of Quinn’s who hadn’t heard from the woman in a couple of days had gone to the house to check on her and found the body — and the little boy. The friend called police.

Police say the child appeared to be in good health but was taken to a hospital as a precaution. The police said detectives, the medical examiner and the state Department of Human Services will try to find relatives of the child.
