Police are now questioning the mother of the two young girls whose bodies were found inside an apartment at the Washington Court complex, off Washington Boulevard in St Andrew, on Saturday. 

"We can confirm that the mother and several other persons are being questioned in relation to the case," detectives from St Andrew Central police division told Loop News.

Police said so far no one has been charged in relation to the development but hinted that things could change as the investigations progress.

Two girls said to be ages five and six were pronounced dead at the Bustamante Children's Hospital on Saturday morning after they were taken to the facility by family members.

Details are unclear as to what caused the death but sources say strange marks were found on the bodies of the children.

 Sources claim the children were left at home unsupervised. 

The death of the children has left residents in the area in shock.

“Have mercy on us father what is this I am hearing why Lord why,” one woman said as she wept openly and had to be consoled by close relatives.

The woman made the comment metres away from where a team of detectives were seen carrying out their investigations.
