Mother, toddler dead in NJ decapitation-suicide, police say

Cadavers help police solve crimes? Absolutely. At the University of Tennessee's Forensic Anthropology Center, a.k.a. the Body Farm, cadavers are left to rot under various environmental conditions so scientists can learn just how bodies decompose - and how long it takes them to decompose. Forensic scientists use the data to better locate and recover human remains - and solve crimes. istockphoto

(AP) CAMDEN, N.J. -- Police say a New Jersey woman apparently decapitated her 2-year-old child before stabbing herself to death after a domestic dispute.

Police tell WPVI-TV in Philadelphia that officers responded to a report of dispute at the home in Camden early Wednesday.

Police say the woman, who had a history of mental problems, had barricaded herself inside after arguing with a man believed to be her boyfriend.

Officers gained entry to the home and found the woman dead and the child's head inside a refrigerator.

No other information is available.
