After his father passed away at their home in upstate New York, a 2-year-old left alone starved to death, officials said. In their apartment in Geneva, which is located about 45 miles southeast of Rochester and 55 miles southwest of Syracuse, David Conde Sr., 59, and David Conde Jr., 2, were discovered dead on February 15, 2022. According to NBC News, a statement from the Ontario County Sheriff's Department stated that the father passed away naturally from "cardiovascular disease." According to the sheriff, the toddler's death was caused by malnutrition, and it was determined that it happened accidentally.

“It is believed that Mr. Conde passed away first, and the child was not able to obtain any nourishment after his father passed,” the sheriff concluded. Investigators have concluded that there were no indications of foul play or forced entry inside the apartment where the duo was last seen alive on January 22. Conde Sr. had not been heard from in a number of weeks when police were summoned to the residence to check on his wellbeing, according to Lt. Joseph Murphy on Thursday. The child wasn't in daycare, and neither of them had been reported missing. Since then, authorities have tracked down and spoken with the mother of the child. The listed phone numbers for the family could not be used to contact them.
