Mich. boy, 1, found safe in home with dead mother

CLINTON TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) - A 1-year-old boy whose mother apparently died days before was found with her body in the Detroit-area apartment they shared.

The Macomb Daily of Mount Clemens says authorities received a phone call from the woman's brother. He had discovered the boy and the body of the 31-year-old woman on Sunday.

Clinton Township police Capt. Richard Maierle (MAR'-lee) says the boy, who was turned over to the woman's brother, was checked by a doctor and has no physical problems. Maierle says an autopsy completed Monday morning found no signs of trauma.

Maierle says the woman was diabetic, but authorities are awaiting toxicology results to determine how she died.

The woman's brother told police he hadn't spoken with her since Wednesday.
