NORTH CANTON, Ohio (WKYC) -- Two infant-sized skeletal remains have been found in a foot locker in North Canton.
Police were called to North Main Street Monday afternoon after a man cleaning out his deceased mother's home found the sealed foot locker. The man says when he and his cousin opened the foot locker they discovered what they thought to be the skeletal remains of an infant inside and called police.
A coroner's investigator was called in to assist and transferred the remains back to the Stark County Coroner's Office for further examination. The coroner's investigator determined the remains were human and that there were two infant skeletal remains in the box.
Police searched the mobile home where the foot locker was found but turned up nothing further.
The skeletal remains will be sent to the Anthropology Department of Mercyhurst University in Erie, PA for extensive forensic examination.
