The Bergen County Prosecutor's office is investigating the deaths of a 53-year-old man and his 3-year-old son.

Even this early in the investigation, they are not calling the deaths suspicious.

Englewood police were called by the mother, after she called the father's apartment at 197 Lafayette Place, and could not reach him.

Police made a forced entry and found both bodies Monday morning.

Early indications, though not confirmed, are that the man may have suffered a fatal illness, and may have collapsed on the child.

A distraught woman who said she was the child's mother, did not agree to be interviewed on camera, but told Eyewitness News "The bodies are gone, and my baby is dead."

Neighbors described the man as a very loving father who was always seen playing with his son.

The autopsy reports may be completed as early as Tuesday.
