2 infants' skeletal remains found in NE Ohio home

NOTH CANTON, Ohio (AP) — 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 deceased mother's home in North Canton, about 45 miles southeast of Cleveland.

The Stark County coroner's office confirmed the remains were those of two infants. It's not clear how old the remains are.

Investigators have searched the home but found nothing else noteworthy.

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