The sudden, unexplained death of a teenage girl and her newborn son on Wednesday evening has left Irving Police searching for answers.
"The Irving Police received a call from a person at a residence," said Officer John Argumaniz, "stating that they believed there was a person inside the residence who was deceased."
Police said when they arrived, they found 15-year-old Rebecca Ray and her 1-month-old son, Cole Childress.
Ray was pronounced dead at the scene, and the infant later died at Baylor Medical Center.
"There were no signs of trauma, no visible injuries to either one," Argumaniz said.
The infant's paternal grandfather, David Childress, said family members said they don't suspect any foul play.
"The opinion of the family is that sometime, maybe while she was feeding the baby, she had a sudden, catastrophic, medical event occur that took her life," Childress said. "And, in the process of that, she rolled over on the baby, and, unfortunately, the baby died, too."
Family and friends of the Ray family have been visited their home throughout the day, remembering the teenager and her newborn.
"She was a wonderful, beautiful girl," Childress said. "I loved her to death. She was excited, full of life, and just eager to be a mom. This is completely devestating. you know, you don't expect something like this to happen to somebody who's so young. A 1-month-old baby. It's hard to celebrate the life of someone who's hardly had a chance to live it."
The Dallas County Medical Examiner performed autopsies on the bodies Thursday. No signs of trauma or injury were found.
Authorities will now have to wait for the results of toxicology tests, which could take months.
Childress said, "To me, answers are irrelevant. It's not gonna change a thing, it's not gonna bring either one of them back."
