Three children — ages 15, 10, and 7 — were found abandoned inside a Houston, Texas, apartment Sunday alongside the skeletal remains of their 9-year-old brother.
The children, all males, were discovered after the eldest brother called police to alert them that his 9-year-old sibling had been dead for a year and was located in the room next to his, the Houston Chronicle reported.
Police said that a neighbor had been caring for the children in recent weeks by periodically bringing food and drinks to them and charging their cell phone. All three of the surviving children were reportedly malnourished and showed signs of physical injury. They were taken to a local hospital for assessment and treatment.
Houston Police Sheriff Ed Gonzalez said it appeared that the children had been left abandoned inside the apartment for an "extended" period of time.
"And I emphasize extended," he added. "They were in there while the body was deteriorating" and "were fending for each other. ... The 15-year-old was taking care of the others."
