A 38-YEAR-old mother died from a heart condition and accidentally killed her four-month-old son when she fell on top of him and suffocated him, cops say.
Larinique Meadows and little Denari were found dead in their home on Saturday, according to Fox 10.
Investigators believe Meadows was researching information about chest pain before suffering the fatal attack.
"It's a very, very tragic incident in which we believe that she had some sort of heart condition, heart episode and then passed away and fell on top of Denari," Detective Greg Bacon of the Tempe Police Department told the Arizona Republic.
Denari's father was sleeping upstairs in the Tempe home when the tragedy took place.
"Dad had gotten home from working the previous evening, went to sleep, and when he woke up, he found that mom Larinique was on top of Denari," Bacon told Fox 10.
A medical examiner will determine the child's cause of death, but it is believed that he suffocated.
There were no signs of trauma, cops told the Republic.
A local resident told the station that "it's always very quiet here. Always quiet."
"That's why it was very shocking."
Denari's father last saw mother and baby on Saturday morning before going to sleep, according to the Republic. He had worked the previous evening.
He found the bodies at around 5 p.m.
