EAST PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — Police called to do a welfare check at a home in East Pittsburgh discovered a woman dead inside with her apparent son lying on top of her.

Police say the woman’s landlord called police because she hadn’t heard from her and couldn’t get ahold of her.

When police entered the home, they found 32-year-old Touzre White dead inside. Her 5-year-old boy was in emaciated condition.

Police do not suspect foul play right now, and said she had a number of pre-existing medical conditions.

Police described the home as being in deplorable condition and a hoarding situation.

Meghan Schiller’s Report:

Police don’t yet know how she died, but said there was a strong smell of natural gas inside the home.

Peoples gas was also called to investigate.

They rushed the little boy to Children’s Hospital, but there is no word yet on how long he was in the home without food or water.
