Milwaukee mom in custody after the death of her son

MILWAUKEE - The Milwaukee County Medical Examiner isn't saying how a Milwaukee toddler died.

14-month-old Leonidas Fisher was found dead by police in his home near 76th and Morgan Sunday.
 
The toddler's 36-year-old mother was discovered semi-conscious after taking a large amount of pills.
 
The woman was revived and taken into custody by Milwaukee Police where she remains as of Monday night.
 
Family asked officers to do a welfare check on the mother and her son because they were worried about their safety.
 
Leo's father wasn't staying at the home after some sort of family argument recently.
 
It isn't clear when the medical examiner is planning to release the cause of death.
