9-Year-Old Girl Dead For Months In Apartment

Posted: Updated:

(CNN) -- Houston police found the body of a child wrapped in blankets inside a refrigerator.

Authorities were called to the home to perform a welfare check.

Investigators say it appears the girl, who was a special needs child and about 9-years-old, had been dead for months.

No one else was in the apartment, which belongs to the child's mother.

At this point, police don't suspect foul play, but they are looking for the mother.

An autopsy will be conducted to determine the cause of death.
