(April 26, 2015) – Children playing outside in their Los Angeles neighborhood before church on Sunday discovered an infant’s remains.

According to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Homicide detectives, the remains are that of a one to three-day-old infant.

The infant appears to have been dismembered and significant portions of the body are still missing.

KTLA spoke with the mother of the two children who first found the remains. They found the baby’s leg near their front yard. Officials say they found the baby’s head a short time later.

The investigation is ongoing, and detectives are hoping to speak with any females in the area who were recently pregnant.
