babyfeet94Local news station WWMT is reporting that a woman in Battle Creek, Michigan, was found dead after recently having an abortion.

The woman had an abortion and then went to Bronson hospital complaining of pain, according to reporter Brittany Gray. She was treated there and then went to her mother’s house where she was found dead two days later.

“After leaving the hospital she just thought it was best that she just stay at her mother’s house, it was only a block away from the hospital just so they could help take care of her,” Detective Sergeant Troy Gilleylen, with Battle Creek Police said.

Two days later, she was found dead.

“She was laying on her mother’s bed in the basement. There was no signs of any foul play or any external injury or anything that appeared to be out of the ordinary for us,” Gilleylen said.

“Gilleylen says detectives are looking into whether this was a natural or medical-related death,” Gray wrote. “And also if there is a criminal element. “

But Gilleylen says that will take time, because the full autopsy report is not expected to be complete for another three to four weeks.

According to her grandmother, the woman had a 1-year-old son.
