Authorities in Denmark say a Kenyan woman and her infant son were on Saturday found dead in their apartment near the capital, Copenhagen.

The bodies of Fridah Rashida and her ten month-old son, Kwanza were discovered by her husband on Saturday morning in the municipality of Gentofte,  about 20 minutes drive from Copenhagen.

Local police say they received a call by Fridah’s husband who is also the toddler’s father, who said the two had died.

Authorities  say the man was questioned and released and is currently not being treated as a suspect in the case.

“On Saturday morning, we had technicians and an on-the spot forensic clinician to investigate what happened in the apartments,” head investigator Brian Grayston of North Zealand Police said in a press release.

By the time of publishing this story, no suspects had been arrested.

By Friday the police had not issued any further statement perhaps due to the sensitivity surrounding the case which is currently being investigated.

Foul play is suspected.
