A 3-month-old child was found alive this week in a Painesville apartment with her parents who had died from an apparent drug overdose.

Police performed a welfare check at the apartment on the 1280 block of West Jackson Street Sunday afternoon where they found 29-year-old Matthew J. Jacquemain and his girlfriend 25-year-old Sarah K. Poorman dead in the home from apparent drug overdoses.

Police said they found the couple's infant daughter in the apartment. The child — who was alive and healthy — was placed in the custody of her paternal grandmother, authorities said.

The official cause of death will be determined by the Lake County Coroner's Office.  The incident is under investigation.
