An elderly woman and a toddler were found dead in an Alabama home late Sunday afternoon.

According to WBRC, officers were sent to the home for a welfare check after family members reported they’d been unable to get in touch.

When responders forced their way into they home, they found the bodies of 62-year-old woman and her 3-year-old grandchild in a back room, AL.com reported. They were pronounced dead at the scene.

Birmingham Police Sergeant Rod Mauldin said it appeared the two had died from blunt force trauma.

“The injuries sustained are what we believe to be consistent with a homicide,’’ Mauldin said.

Investigators also said a person of interest was in custody and being questioned but provided no further information.
