Complaints of a foul odor coming from a Rancho Cucamonga Apartment to the maintenance crew led them to contact police which were absolutely stunned to discovery of the bodies of a 4-year-old boy and a 29-year-old female Wednesday that San Bernardino County Sheriff’s deputies are calling a murder-suicide, according to a sheriff’s news release.
Deputies went to the complex at 11:34 AM following the complex maintenance staff call, and were horrified after making entry into the apartment and first finding the deceased child who was described as being “too young to have died this way”.
