PHOENIX – Police are searching for clues after the remains of a newborn child were found in Phoenix early Tuesday, authorities said.
“It’s difficult to process,” Phoenix Police Department spokesman Philip Krynsky said during a press conference.
Officers responded to a residential area near 35th Avenue and Camelback Road around 5:45 a.m. after a caller reported finding the remains, Krynsky said.
The remains were likely there since Monday, according to Krynsky.
Homicide detectives were brought in to investigate the scene and interview witnesses.
No other details were made available.
“Anyone with information, we do ask that you come forward,” Krynsky said.
