ADAMS COUNTY, Colo. (CBS4) – A grieving family wants answers after a grandmother and her young grandson were found dead.

A relative found the bodies last Friday night in an apartment on West 66th Place in Adams County. Police said autopsies were expected to be completed on Monday.

The family of Raelynn and Fabian Gonzales want to know what happened. Felicia Gonzales said she came home from work Friday around 7 p.m. and found both her child and mother dead. The baby was sitting in his chair.

“I looked in the kitchen and found my mom … (cries) … and my son too … and it’s just horrible,” Felicia Gonzales said.

Felicia Gonzales says within a two-hour span something went wrong. Raelynn Gonzales, 50, left food on the stove, which was burning when Felicia Gonzales came home.

“She only cooks if someone is there. She won’t cook if it’s just her and the baby. She will make him something to eat, and her a little something, not a whole big dinner,” Felicia Gonzales said. “She was making tuna casserole.”

Police say the case is an open homicide investigation. They have released few details, but say they aren’t searching for a suspect.

The family also has little details, but doesn’t believe Raelynn Gonzales would hurt her grandson.

“We know deep down in our hearts she would never do nothing like this,” son-in-law Sonny Cisneros said.

“Who would do this to them, especially my son? You know he was just learning how to walk, barely living life,” Felicia Gonzales said.

Neighbors said the apartment where the crime occurred has a lot of traffic coming in and out. The Gonzales family was being asked to move.
