Michigan State Police said a soldier found a dehydrated 6-month-old baby in the same room as her dead parents on Friday, along with drug paraphernalia.

Autopsies were performed Saturday on the baby’s parents, Fox 17 reported. The cause of death was not immediately known and the news channels reported will be at least 30 days before the toxicology results are in.

The police said the soldier made the disturbing discovery on Friday, shortly before noon, after answering a control at the Rodeway Inn in Whitehall, in the western part of the state. The girl, named Skylah, apparently it was only for 3 days, researchers said.

The parents, Jessica Bramer and the 28-year-old Christian Reed, had been staying with the girl in the motel room for a week, family said.
