Manuela Reish, New York woman, held by police after finding son dead

A 4-year-old boy was found dead inside a New York apartment in Mamaroneck with his mother found unconscious.

The woman, identified as Manuela Reish, is being held by police and described as “a person of interest in the case.”

Police was contacted to perform a welfare check on the 46-year-old woman who was found cradling the lifeless child, Jason, is believed to have killed the boy before trying to kill herself, according to Lohud.com.

Sources said the child was living with his mother, who was divorced and in the middle of a custody dispute with her husband, Tim Reish, a New York City doctor who lives in Briarcliff.

“All I saw was his father screaming upstairs, asking questions like ‘Who was there, where is he, where is his mother?” Jennifer Andujar, a worker at JW Tumbles, a nearby play center where the child was enrolled, said.

Police did not immediately release the cause of death, but said it is being treated as suspicious.

No charges will be filed until an autopsy is completed on the little boy, police said.
