Three People, Including 6-Month-Old Boy, Found Dead Inside Lauderdale Lakes Apartment

Two women and a 6-month-old boy were found dead inside a Lauderdale Lakes apartment on Sunday, and the cops aren't being too generous with details.

Twenty-five-year-old Natasha Plummer and her roommate, 21-year-old Octavia Barnett, were the two women found dead, according to the Broward Sheriff's Office.

Carlton Stringer Jr., Plummer's 6-month-old boy, was also found dead.

Barnett's 11-month-old boy was also in the apartment, but he was not injured, according to the sheriff's office.

The cops were called around 8 a.m. Sunday after an unidentified man who knew the women entered the apartment at 2750 Somerset Drive and found them dead.

Aside from that, the sheriff's office says it isn't releasing any information on how the three were killed or any possible suspects at this time.

The only additional detail the sheriff's office has added was that the two women weren't related.
