After responding to reports of a foul order coming from an apartment, police found 36-year-old Virginia Wanjiru Njorge, lying dead on the bed. Authorities believe she had been deceased for several days. But they made an even more alarming discovery – the womans 3-week-old twins were found under the bed, both malnourished and in critical condition. The two babies were taken to a hospital, where one child, a baby girl, later died. Her twin brother remained in critical condition.
Emergency crews initially overlooked the infants. But when they found car seats and other baby items in the Olathe, Kansas apartment, they embarked on a more thorough search. The pair were discovered after one of the babies let out a faint cry when the paramedic accidentally bumped the bed which they were under.
