Woman's body found in Worcester apartment; children in state custody


WORCESTER, Mass. ( – A mother was found dead Friday night inside a Worcester apartment. Her two children are now in state custody.

It happened at a Green Hill Parkway apartment building. Police said a property manager went to the apartment to collect rent. That's when two children inside reportedly told the manager their mother was sleeping and wouldn't get up.
Investigators said the woman's 5-year-old son unlocked the door. Inside, police found the 34-year-old woman dead in a closet.
Officials found drugs at the scene and believe she died from an overdose three to five days prior to finding her body.
