South Boston police discover the skeletal remains of four infants in an East Broadway condo
South Boston police: An investigation was underway on Tuesday after police found the remains of four human infants inside an apartment in south Boston earlier this month. “A post-mortem examination was performed on two infant males and two infant females, and the results of the autopsies remain pending,” Boston police said Monday.
According to authorities, when officers responded to the residence on November 17, they discovered what appeared to be “a human foetus or infant.” The following day, they returned to the residence on East Broadway for further investigation and discovered “additional human remains.” At least one body was found in the freezer.
According to property records obtained by the Boston Herald, the building contains nine apartment units. Authorities reportedly discovered the remains within a one-bedroom apartment whose sole owner, a woman in her sixties, has lived there since the 1980s. As the investigation continues to unfold, neighbors remain shocked over the horrific discovery made so close to their homes.
Connor Foley, a local, told NBC 10: “It’s obviously heartbreaking.” “I believe that’s the biggest issue it’s strange not knowing what happened. Obviously, there was a discovery, but we have no idea what caused it or if the threat still exists… People want to know what happened, and I believe that’s the most important thing.”
No arrests have been reported, and the police have not yet revealed who dialed 911 to report the remains. Anyone with information is urged to contact local authorities.
