Columbus mom, baby death under investigation


Autopsy results have not yet been released in the deaths of a 28-year-old Columbus mother and her infant son.

Both Donna Cargil and two-month-old Matthew Burkett, who were sleeping in the same bed, found unresponsive in their Morris Avenue home early Thursday morning by the baby's father.

A next door neighbor said she saw the woman the day before her death and she was asking for food. She seemed disoriented and irritated.  

Another neighbor says the family seemed very close and the little boy looked like his father.

The Columbus deputy coroner told News Leader 9 there is no indication of foul play. The case remains a death investigation by police.
