QUEENS (WPIX)—A 19-month-old girl was found unconscious Thursday afternoon in a Corona apartment and was later pronounced dead and, in an unrelated incident, a 12-year-old boy's body was discovered about a half hour later in a home near Hunters Point in an apparent suicide, police said.
The baby girl was identified as Anniyah Levant and the boy was identified as Elijah Mendez.
Investigators spent the night searching for evidence in the mysterious death of the baby girl, who police said lived with her mother and at least one sibling. Neighbors reportedly said the woman had moved in with her children last year.
Police are still investigating Elijah's death.
