She was lying on the living room floor. An unconscious and unresponsive 4-year-old boy was face down submerged in a bathtub.

Police are investigating the death of a mother and son after finding both dead inside their apartment Monday morning, officials said. I don't know what happened but she was always working. She told the teen "not to worry" about using protection during their five-times-a-week trysts, according the a report by the Special Commissioner of Investigation. The super last saw her alive Wednesday.

Another stunned neighbor, who asked not to be named, said, "There was never any noise from her apartment".

Police believe the child's cause of death was drowning.

Circumstances leading up to the mother and her son's death has not been determined, but the New York Police Department are working diligently to uncover if the incident was a homicide or a murder-suicide.

Barahona gave birth to a baby boy, Miguel in August 2012 and was sacked from her $73 000 a year job officials said.
