Young mother found dead in Cypress Hills

A 22-year-old mother of two was found dead in her apartment in Cypress Hills early Friday morning by her own mother, and police are now looking for clues in the case.

Eigland Esquea's mother went looking for her after she didn't pick up one of her children from school Thursday. Police have not ruled her death a homicide, saying they are waiting for autopsy results to confirm a cause of death.

Police say Esquea was last seen Thursday afternoon with her children's father, Darnell Blunt, and they would like to question him. Anyone with information on Blunt's whereabouts can call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS.
