Police in southwest suburban Hickory Hills say the deaths of a mother and a newborn baby in their home were not the result of foul play or domestic violence.

Investigators say 38-year-old Margaret Jefferson had been sick for two weeks and may have died from complications brought on by the flu during the late stage of her pregnancy.

The medical examiner says she died of natural causes.

First responders crews found Jefferson Thursday. She had delivered her baby, which was stillborn.

An autopsy is being conducted.
