The body of a newborn girl was found buried in the backyard of a residential home in Ohio, police have said.
Riverside Police have identified the body as Addalynn Marie George, who was born on December 21, 2017.
The infant was found dead on Sunday evening behind a home on Richland Avenue, according to police records.
Officers have said there are not suspects – and that it is being investigated as an abuse of a corpse.
Police said they are talking with dozens of witnesses, according to Daytona Daily News, and have also identified a couple believed to be the child’s parents.
‘It’s tragic,’ Major Adam Colon told the paper.
The autopsy was performed Monday but the Montgomery county coroner’s office has not determine a cause of death, or the exact age of the child at her death.
Officers found the body after receiving a report of a dead infant. They went to the home around 5.30pm Sunday where they discovered the body buried behind the residence.
The coroner’s office was then dispatched to the home around 11.20pm Sunday, and neighbors told the Daily News they watched trucks with large portable lights illuminate the back yard.
Other neighbors said they were shocked to find out a child had been found dead, because it’s a ‘very quiet’ neighborhood.
An investigation is ongoing.
