Mother tells police she and kids were attacked

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP & KWWL) - The mother of a toddler found dead in the woods near Littleton has told investigators that she and her two sons were attacked by a man with a knife.

Division of Criminal Investigation agent Jeff Jacobson says that Michelle Kehoe told police officers at the scene on Monday about the alleged attack.

The mother's account sheds some light on a case in which authorities aren't releasing much.

Condition reports are still not available for Michelle Kehoe and 7-year-old Sean Kehoe. An autopsy on Tuesday found that 2-year-old Seth Kehoe died of cuts made with a sharp instrument.

They were discovered when Michelle Kehoe walked to a Littleton house on Monday and asked for help, saying her children were in danger.

According to Jessica Lown, a spokesperson for the Department of Public Safety, the possibility of someone attacking the three family members has been a part of the investigation from the beginning.

Lown says they don't believe there is a crazy person running around that would attack another family.
