Remains of infants discovered at Texas mobile home park

By Calvin Palmer

Authorities in north Texas are investigating the skeletal remains of two infants found in a mobile home park yesterday.

The bones were found in a garbage bag left by a tenant who had moved out of a mobile home on the park between Mansfield and Burleson, about 20 miles south of Fort Worth.

Tarrant County Medical Examiner’s Office and forensic investigators are studying the remains.

Terry Grisham, sheriff’s spokesman, said it remains unknown how the infants died.

“Right now we can’t confirm if they were live births, stillborns, or born and killed. We just really don’t have any idea,” Grisham said.

The remains of one infant were in a box inside a trash bag. The other remains were in a plastic container. Both boxes were under the porch.

“You couldn’t see them unless you got down on your knees,” Grisham said.

Investigators have identified the sister and brother who had lived in the mobile home. The woman is being interviewed by detectives.
