Crying Baby Found Next to Murdered Mom in Phoenix Home
A Phoenix woman's 10-month-old baby was found crying in a Phoenix home last night as she sat next to the bodies of her murdered mother and her mother's boyfriend.
The victims have been identified as 24-year-old Marilyn Guerra and Dylan Bell, who's in his mid-20s.
Phoenix police say officers responded to a call to a home in the 7900 block of West Highland Avenue about 6 p.m. yesterday. The caller, Guerra's 60-year-old mother, told police she went to her daughter's home and found the two bodies.
She also told police the baby was crying next to her mother's body when she entered the home.
Fire officials checked out the baby and determined she was unharmed.
Phoenix Sergeant Steve Martos says detectives spent the night investigating the scene.
Martos says there's currently no suspect in the case, and wouldn't comment on how the two were murdered.
