Skylah Rae, the six-month-old baby of Jessica Bramer, 26, and Christian Reed, 28, was found alive but severely dehydrated after spending several days alone in a Michigan motel room beside the corpses of her parents, according to police. There were no signs of forced entry or foul play. Who are Jessica Bramer and Christian Reed?

What do we know of this bizarre situation?


1. Drug paraphernalia was present, but no signs of overdose

The release states that there was drug paraphernalia in the Rodeway Inn room, but the autopsy performed on Bramer and Reed didn’t immediately indicate any particular definite cause of death. We’ll need another 30 days before the toxicology results are returned to confirm this, though.

2. The couple had been in and out of jail

According to family members, the couple was in and out of jail before they settled in this motel room for a week. Apparently, though, the baby’s grandparents contacted Children’s Protective Services in January out of concern for her welfare.

3. They were found because of a welfare check

Shortly before noon on Friday, a state trooper was sent to the Rodeway Inn on E. Colby Street near US-31 in Whitehall Township for a wellfare check. “The case is ongoing with several investigative angles being pursued,” Michigan State Police said in a statement according to MLive.
