A ‘wonderful and loving’ mother and her one-year-old baby were found dead at their apartment in Cumbria only days after Christmas.
Police officers found the bodies of 27-year-old Natalie Kane and her son Harry at their home in Wellington, Whitehaven, after neighbors claimed they heard water constantly running down the pipe.
However, Cumbria Constabulary have said that the deaths are not being treated as suspicious.
“She was a lovely lass and absolutely doted on that little boy, he was beautiful and this is such a tragedy,” one neighbor said.
“The police haven’t told us what happened, just that Natalie and Harry were found dead in her flat. There was nothing alarming beforehand, the only unusual thing was that there seemed to be water constantly running down the waste pipe.
“It sounded as though a bath or sink had perhaps been overflowing.”
The neighbor continued: “The police were asking neighbors if they had seen Natalie and the next thing I knew there were police officers and paramedics running into the flat.
“When they told us they’d both died it was heartbreaking.”
Another friend described the mother as a ‘wonderful and loving mother who lived for her little boy.’
A Cumbria Police spokesperson said: “There are no suspicious circumstances at this time, and the coroner has been contacted.”
Natalie’s friends set up a GoFundMe page to raise money for the Women Out West charity, which had helped the 27-year-old mother.
“After the tragic news and sudden loss it’s only in our best wishes to give Natalie and Harry the best send off possible.,” the page reads. “We would like to give Natalie’s family a big help by contributing to this as this is what they deserve.
“We’re not asking for the full amount but every little helps and if were to receive more than expected Natalie’s brother Shane’s chosen charity is Women Out West.
“This Charity helped Natalie out so much and Shane is so pleased that they were there for Natalie that this is the best way to say thank you.”
