LOS ANGELES - The names of a mother and adult son found dead in a Baldwin Park home December 4 have been released Wednesday.
Susie Drake, 73, and Joseph Drake, 50, were named by the Los Angeles County Department of Medical Examiner-Coroner December 5.
Autopsies on both victims have yet to be performed.
Police and firefighters were called around 4:42 a.m. to the home in the 3900 block of Kenmore Avenue to a victim in cardiac arrest after family members inside the home made the 9-1-1 call. Police found Joseph Drake unresponsive and soon found his mother dead in a different room.
There were no apparent signs of trauma on either body, according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Homicide Bureau.
