    can't believe the neighbors didn't notice that the woman and her son hadn't been seen in a week and didn't check sooner

    In defense of the neighbors, I used to live in an apartment, and because of differing schedules, could go a week or more without seeing any of them. What surprises me is that the child did not try to reach out to any of them for help when he became extremely hungry. I am not blaming the child for failing to do so; I'm just surprised he didn't.

    Very sad. Poor child. Natural causes as the death doesn't say much.
