Boy found left alone for 2 days after mom dies in home

BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — A Rent-A-Center employee is credited with potentially saving a young boy’s life after finding his mother dead around two days after she died.

Taijuan Littleton arrived at the family’s East Delavan Avenue apartment for an appointment, but his longtime customer, Shaleena Hamilton, did not respond to his arrival.

Hamilton was found dead and her son, four-year-old Bryan Allen, thought she was just sleeping for the previous 48 hours. Hamilton was determined to have died after having a blood clot, falling and breaking her neck.

Allen is doing well and is staying with relatives for now.
