La Vista toddler found alone with mother’s dead body

A sad story out of La Vista, where a 30–year–old woman was found dead and her toddler left alone with her body for more than 12 hours.

Police say Christi Woodby's two-year-old son sat for up to 15 hours, while Christi lay dead.  La Vista Chief Bob Lausten says, “We are very fortunate that there was a friend who called to check up on the victim and went over there to find out what was going on.”

A toxicology report is still pending, but the autopsy shows Christi died of natural causes.  Police say her little boy is in good health and spirits as he waits in state custody until it's determined where he'll live.
