(Meredith) – A newborn baby was found dead next to her mother inside a home filled with feces and maggots in Jersey City, New Jersey.

According to WCBS, the bodies of the little girl and the 41-year-old mother were discovered on Saturday, January 25.

The baby was pronounced dead at the scene. The mother died later at a nearby medical center.

The cause of their deaths is unknown at this time, but neighbors said they had seen drug addicts and squatters living in the home. Not only that, but they also said it was infested with bugs.
