Cops: Baby apparently starves after mom’s suspected overdose

MILLVALE, PA. (AP) — Investigators outside Pittsburgh have identified a young woman whose apparent death from a drug overdose is believed to have led to the starvation death of her infant son.

Authorities say the bodies of 22-year-old Sara Kessler and her 9-month-old son, Casey, were found Friday inside Kessler’s Millvale apartment.

Police say Kessler’s brother found the two dead when he went to check on them after not hearing from his sister for days.

No one else lived on the same floor where Kessler lived with her baby.

Police say they believe the mother may have been dead for a week or more before Friday’s discovery. They say there was no evidence of foul play.

Autopsies are planned Saturday.
