A Pennsylvania couple were found dead by their 7-year-old daughter Monday; dead of suspected drug overdoses. She called her school saying she couldn’t wake them up. It’s the filthy house that they lived in previously, however, that’s causing the most shock to people.
The bodies of 26-year-old Christopher Dilly and 25-year-old Jessica Lally were found Monday evening in their apartment.
A nine-month-old girl, three-year-old boy and five-year-old boy who were inside the home were taken to a hospital to be evaluated.
It’s believed that the couple died from a drug overdose and foul play isn’t suspected. It’s also suspected that they were dead for a day or two.
Authorities were called to home at around 5 p.m. after their oldest daughter told a school counselor that something was wrong with her parents.
Authorities did find evidence of drug use in the apartment where their bodies were discovered, but autopsies will be conducted to determine the exact cause and manner of death.
Back in February, a woman named Courtney Lally claimed to be Jessica Lally’s sister, and shared with a true-crime blog a series of photos that she says were taken inside Jessica and Christopher’s former home.
Courtney accused her sister of being a drug addict and keeping her four kids in filthy conditions.
She posted those concerns and frustration in a rambling and run-on Facebook post back on February 13th.
The post was accompanied by the photos in this article, and were taken in their previous residence. They clearly show deplorable living conditions.
Jessica Lally purportedly vehemently denied the accusations and accused Courtney of doing the damage to frame her and make her look bad.so she could take her kids away from her.
At one point, the Department of Children and Youth Services had taken custody of Jessicaâ€™s kids away from her and put them in the care of their grandmother, but she eventually regained custody of them.
Neither of the two deceased adults had prior drug arrests.
