Cleveland news, Ohio news.

An Ohio mom and her toddler daughter were discovered dead inside their Cleveland Heights home on Saturday and police believe the incident was a murder-suicide.

It's still unclear what led 34-year-old Noelle Loren Cotton to shoot dead her 4-year-old daughter, Savannah Noelle Cotton, then herself in their bedroom. Neighbors and residents of Cleveland Heights have no clue regarding Cotton's motive.

"I've got children and grandchildren, we all go through stuff and we all process things differently as well," neighbor Cheryl Rush said. "I'm trying to wrap my mind around what triggered that type of response."

Autopsy results are pending. More details will be made available as the investigation continues.
