An investigation is underway after the skeletal remains of two infants were found in a North Canton mobile home.

Cops were called to the mobile home on North Main Street just before 12:30 p.m. on Monday.

Officers met with a man who was at the lot to clean out the mobile home of his recently deceased mother. As he and his cousin were going through her belongings, they found a locked foot locker. When they opened it, they discovered what they believed were skeletal remains of a small infant. They notified the police department immediately of their findings.

Officers responded and upon their initial observations they confirmed there were skeletal remains in the foot locker. Stark County Coroner, Dr. P. S. Murthy's office was contacted and a Coroner's investigator responded to the scene to assist in the investigation. Still unable to accurately explain what the skeletal remains were the investigator took the foot locker and all its contents to the Coroner's office for further examination. Officers did a search of the mobile home and nothing else was found to contribute to the investigation of the remains found in the foot locker.

Later Monday night, the Coroner's investigator confirmed the skeletal remains were human and two infant size skeletal remains were found in the foot locker.

Stark County Coroner, Dr. P. S. Murthy will prepare the foot locker and the skeletal remains for delivery to the Anthropology Department of Mercyhurst University, Erie, PA. for extended forensic examination.

The North Canton Police Department's detective bureau and the Stark County Coroner's Office continue to investigate the past events surrounding this finding.
