Baby found alive with dead parents in Michigan motel room

WHITEHALL, Michigan (AP) – Michigan State Police in the United States (US) said a trooper found a dehydrated six-month-old baby at a motel in the western part of the state in the same room with her dead parents.

WOOD-TV reported that a cause of death wasn’t immediately clear and it may take weeks until toxicology results are in.

The trooper discovered the bodies last Friday at the Rodeway Inn near Whiteball after responding to a request for a well-being check. Authorities said the baby girl, named Skylah, could have been alone for three days.

Police identified the parents as 26-year-old Jessica Bramer of Grand Rapids and 28-year-old Christian Reed of Marne. Skylah was in critical condition at a Grand Rapids hospital last Saturday and was expected to fully recover. It wasn’t clear who might take custody of the girl.
