2 infants' skeletal remains found in footlocker

NORTH CANTON, Ohio – Authorities say the skeletal remains of two infants were found in a deceased woman's mobile home in northeast Ohio.

A man told police he found the remains Monday in a locked footlocker while cleaning out his mother's home in North Canton, about 45 miles southeast of Cleveland. Police said the 66-year-old woman died in late November.

The Stark County Coroner's Office confirmed the remains were those of two infants.

The police chief said it's not clear how old the remains are but that it doesn't appear the children died recently. He says the remains were in a plastic bag that was in the locker with a small blanket.

Investigators searched the home but found nothing else noteworthy.

The coroner's office plans to have forensic anthropologists in Pennsylvania examine the remains.
