The suspected skeletal remains of a nine-year-old boy were found in a Houston apartment and may have been there for a year, Texas authorities said. 

“I have been in this business a long time, and never saw anything like this,” Harris County Sheriff Ed Gonzalez said during a press conference Sunday, describing the scene as “horrific” and “tragic.”

Harris County authorities responded to a call on Sunday after a 15-year-old boy who also lives in the apartment told officials that his 9-year-old brother had been dead for a year. The teenager told the sheriff’s office that the body was in the apartment he shared with two other younger brothers, ABC 13 reported.

The teenager also said his parents had not lived in the apartment for a few months. The two other brothers are ages seven and 10. 

Police found the three brothers in the apartment, as well as the skeletal remains that are suspected to belong to the 9-year-old. The boys appeared to have been abandoned and malnourished, according to authorities.

“[We’re] Connecting all the dots at this point, it appears [the kids] were in there while the body was deteriorating,” Gonzalez said.
