A man, woman and 1-year-old who were found dead in a Downey apartment were identified by Los Angeles County coroner officials on Sunday.

The bodies of Nicolas Quezada, 29, Reyna Hernandez, 26, and 1-year-old Jude Quezada, were discovered Wednesday night after an apartment manager requested a welfare check be done after being unable to reach them for two days. The complex was located near Old River School Road and Neo Street.

The woman and toddler were found in a bathtub filled with water, Lt. Mark McDaniel with the Downey Police Department said at the time.

The man was found in another room.

There was no sign of a struggle, no weapons were found, and neighbors did not initially report hearing or seeing anything suspicious, McDaniel said Wednesday night.

The cause of death has not been released.
