Authorities say a woman and a baby died in a Webster City apartment Sunday, but the cause of their deaths has been released.
Webster City Police on Thursday afternoon released the names of the two people whose bodies were found in an apartment on Sunday morning. They were identified as 28 year old Mariangelys Ortiz and 3 month old Abimelec Ortiz Figueroa.
Autopsies were performed on both individuals by the State Medical Examiner’s Office in Ankeny.
