SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA: A nine-month-baby boy has been found dead at the Western Sydney home. The police found the baby unresponsive inside the home at Doonside in Sydney's west on Monday at about 10 am after they responded to the location to conduct a welfare check.

“Just after 10 am... emergency services were called to a home on Yindi Place, Doonside, following a concern for welfare report,” according to a police statement. Sadly, the baby was unable to be revived by paramedics. The police have barricaded the area as the forensic team is investigating the location while the detectives are questioning the parents of the baby.

The house where the 9-months-baby was found dead was filled with piles of nappies on the footpath and overflowing bins dumped on top of a shopping trolley, says a report by Daily Mail.

The Daily Mail Australia visited the house on Tuesday and found the backyard scattered with beer bottles, rubbish, and broken toys while garbage was spilling out from the front door onto the verandah of the house.

The neighbors of the couple, who are taken to Blacktown police station for questioning, told Daily Mail that they believe the dead child was a baby boy. Neighbors added they have heard the loud arguments coming from the parents of the baby boy but they have seen the family of four children for the last two or four weeks.

Jessica, who lives behind the squalid residence, told Daily Mail Australia, 'I saw the dogs, but I barely saw the children. I feel so terrible I didn't notice anything. I heard them (the parents of the children) shouting at each other... fighting. I never saw the baby.'

Another neighbor, Karen, told Daily Mail that she noticed all the kids playing and laughing on the back patio but that had been a few weeks ago and the family has not stepped out recently. 'The parents, I think they had some issues,' Karen said. 'It's just a tragedy. I don't know whether it was an accident or a natural death. I was devastated actually that someone so young won't continue on with their life.’

'I have lived in this community for 33 years and you get the odd incident, but a year ago Jason was killed. It's heartbreaking that so many young lives are lost,' Ms Nicholas said while referring to 16-year-old Jason Galleghan, who was found dead at a house nearby the filthy house where the 9-months-old baby boy was found dead.

However, no charges have been laid and the parents of the baby are still questioned by the police while forensic police are investigating the cause behind the death of the baby boy.
