A neighbor said he is filled with guilt after hearing the cries of a 9-month-old boy who is believed to have starved to death in an apartment after his mother died of an apparent overdose.
‘If I was closer to the noise, I would have done something. I didn’t know. I feel so guilty. I feel so bad,’ William Gonzalez said.
The brother of the Pittsburgh-area woman went to check on his sister Friday morning , when he found her and her child, Casey, dead in their second floor home.
Sara Kessler, 22, had not been heard from recently and may have died a week or two earlier, Assistant Allegheny County police Superintendent James Morton said.
She was found on her bed and her son was in the living room. The superintendent said there were no signs of foul play.
Mr Gonzalez, who lives on the first floor, said he was most upsetknowing that the child was left alone with no chance to survive.
