(Scroll down for video) A young girl went to school and told her teacher that she cannot wake up her parents.
The school staff in Pennsylvania, called police after the 7-year-old girl informed the teacher that her parents were sleeping and she cannot wake them up.
Police who went to the home to check on the family, found both parents dead.
They also found the couple’s four children home alone. The couple left behind a nine-month-old girl, 3-year-old boy, 5-year-old boy and 7-year-old girl.
The Allegheny County medical examiner believes that 26-year-old Christopher Dilly and Jessica Lally, 25, were dead for two days before the child told her teacher that her parents were sleeping.
The children were taken to a hospital to be evaluated. They were placed in the custody of the Allegheny County Children Youth and Families.
The mother’s sister, Courtney Lally, said that she had called child services after finding her sister’s home in deplorable conditions, but they did not do anything to help.
Courtney said that she also sent photos of the deplorable conditions of her sister’s Munhall home to the police, but they also refused to get involved.
Courtney said that Jessica became furious with her and moved her family to McKeesport.
Courtney said that she begged her sister to go to rehab, but she did not see the need.
Sadly, the couple died of a heroin overdose and their young children were left all alone with the bodies for two days.
Courtney and her mother are now trying to get custody of the four children.
