Authorities discovered three abandoned children and the skeletal remains of a fourth individual, most likely their sibling, in an apartment near downtown Houston on Sunday.

The Harris County Sheriff’s Office received a call from a 15-year-old boy who revealed his 9-year-old brother’s body was in the room next to his, according to a statement from the department.

According to the statement, the teen told the sheriff’s office that the boy had already been dead for a year and that the mom and dad had not lived in the residence for “several months.”

When officers showed up, they discovered “the remains of a small child, which did appear aligned with the age made available by the 15-year-old and two other boys under the age of 10 in the residence, according to the sheriff’s office.

According to officials, the boys appeared undernourished and showed evidence of physical injury before being taken to a hospital.

The mother of the kids and her boyfriend were apprehended by authorities. According to Harris County Sheriff Ed Gonzalez, they were interrogated and released on Monday morning. There have been no formal charges, and the investigation is still ongoing.
