Homicide detectives are investigating the disturbing discovery of an extremely emaciated youth in a Citadel home.
The emergency call came just after 10 p.m. Tuesday to the Citadel Dr. N.W. bungalow for reports of a deceased youth, police said.
An autopsy was set for Wednesday, police saying no details would be available until after it is completed.
Sources said the state of the child’s extremely emaciated body was shocking and upsetting.
It is unknown whether immediate calls for assistance for the child were made.
EMS spokesman Stuart Brideaux said the teen could not be revived once paramedics arrived.
The teen, who is believed to be 15, is said to have lived in the home with his parents and several siblings, some of whom are adults.
