State Police investigate death of mother and child in East Leroy


CALHOUN COUNTY (WKZO) -- It’s a total mystery. 

State Police hope toxicology tests conducted on the body of a young woman and her infant daughter will reveal why they died in bed overnight.

It happened in a home they shared with her parents on 6-mile Road in East Leroy in Southern Calhoun County.

Linda Hubbard’s dad discovered they weren’t breathing at about 5 a.m. Saturday, and immediately called for help. They could not be revived.

The home was tested for carbon monoxide and other tests conducted.

Police say there are no signs of trauma or foul play on the body of the 32-year-old, or her 5-month-old daughter Ashlyn, but they will treat it as suspicious until they have evidence that it was something else.

Visitation will be from Thursday from 4 to 8 p.m. at the Farley-Estes & Dowdle Funeral Home in Battle Creek.

The Funeral will be at 11a.m. at the North Avenue Church of God in Battle Creek. Burial will be at Riverside Cemetery in Kalamazoo.
