Preliminary investigations into the death of an 18-year-old mother and her 3-week-old daughter inside their Bullard Street apartment in New Bedford have not revealed evidence of foul play.

Bristol County District Attorney Sam Sutter says that detectives and State troopers are continuing to investigate the unattended deaths that occurred friday afternoon. He identified the woman as Reina Aicia Ramos and her infant daughter as Melissa Lorena Ixcuna-Ramos.

A final ruling will be issued after all aspects of the autopsy are complete, which could take several weeks.
