Columbia police are investigating the suspicious deaths of a woman and a 3-year-old, found this morning in an apartment at 195 Brook Pines Drive.
Police found the two dead in the apartment after family members called, saying that they had not heard from the woman since Thursday.
Interim Police Chief Randy Scott said foul play is suspected, but no cause of death has been determined for either victim.
Richland County Coroner Gary Watts said he expected to release the identities of the mother and child Monday. They had been dead “least 24 hours” before being found, Watts said.
Brook Pines Drive is off Broad River Road, just north of I-20 but south of St. Andrews Road.
