Some neighbor’s who live on the same block as the family of four said they were in utter disbelief to learn of the incident.
“I’m totally shocked that this could happen in our community right across the street,” neighbor Kimberly said.
The mother told authorities that her daughter died of natural causes, but the medical examiner has yet to identify the 47-year-old’s cause of death. Neighbors said she suffered from health issues.
The Detroit mother has yet to be charged by police officials as of Tuesday according to Abc13.
Neighbors told the news outlet they would see Miss Mary sitting outside on the porch, but noticed her daughter missing.
