A Morganton resident made a heartbreaking discovery this morning, after driving by a home in the area.

As the motorist drove by, he noticed what appeared to be a lifeless toddler lying on the front porch.

The Burke County Sheriff’s office has confirmed that a toddler was found deceased at the residence.

It is believed the boy, who turned three yesterday, wandered outside at some point during the evening or early morning hours. When officers arrived at the residence, the front door was wide open, presumably from when the toddler exited the home.

Inside the house, authorities found the child’s mother, who was still asleep.

At this time, officers remain at the location and are still investigating the incident.
