Two decomposing bodies were found inside an apartment at the Astoria Houses NYCHA complex early Thursday after a resident reported smelling a foul odor

The NYPD received a call at around 12:25 a.m. and found the two bodies — partially decomposed — inside an apartment at 1-05 Astoria Blvd, police said.

The pair is thought to be a mother and her adult son, Pix11 reported.

Police believe that the mother died of natural causes and her son, who had a disability, was unable to take care of himself and later died.

The city’s Medical Examiner will determine their official cause of death. The investigation is ongoing.
