Bodies of 3 found in S Fla home identified

LAUDERDALE LAKES -- The Broward Sheriff's Office has released the identities of the baby boy and two women whose bodies were found in a South Florida apartment.

The sheriff's office identified the victims Monday as 25-year-old Natasha Plummer and her 6-month-old son Carlton Stringer, Jr., and their roommate 21-year-old Octavia Barnett.

The three were found dead Sunday in their apartment in Lauderdale Lakes. Barnett's 11-month-old son was in the apartment at the time but was not injured.

Authorities say a man who knew the women dropped by the home to check on them and later called police.

Sheriff's office spokeswoman Dani Moschella says foul play is suspected, but further details on how the victims were killed have not yet been released. Moschella says the women were not related.
