A 4-year-old boy and his father were found dead in a South Florida condo, just hours after the child's mother made an urgent request for authorities to pick up the baby.
The Fort Lauderdale Police Department did not give a reason for the immediate death and police did not release further details on the discovery of the bodies in the Fort Lauderdale city center late Friday.

The South Florida Sun Sentinel reported that less than 12 hours after the bodies were found, the boy's mother received an email from a judge denying her urgent evacuation order. The judge ruled that the proposal "does not constitute an emergency as it addresses the issue of child visits."
Last week, the boy's mother sought protection orders from her father for harassment and domestic violence. He said the boy's father had set up fake accounts on social media to follow him, made a background and checked people's debts in his life and sent scary texts.
Three days before his death, he sent her a text message, "You deserve to be beheaded in your body," at her request.
On Friday, the mother applied for an emergency evacuation, which would authorize law enforcement agencies to go and take the baby. The petition cited a series of threatening and insulting letters that my father had sent to him that week.
Police did not release further details on the discovery of the bodies in the Fort Lauderdale city center late Friday.
He said the father did not take him to school and that the police could not find him to check on him.

"It just broke my heart because our system could do better," said Meaghan Marro, my mother's lawyer.
William Devries, the landlord, said the boy's mother had phoned him asking him to check on her son, saying the father appeared "wrong."
"She was very worried, obviously," Devries said.
The Devries family called police, who arrived on Friday night to find the bodies.
