The bodies of four babies have been discovered in a storage locker in the western Canadian city of Winnipeg, police said yesterday.
Police said they are “speaking with a number of individuals” as part of their investigation into the gruesome discovery, while an autopsy was underway.
“It´s too early to say what has transpired,” Constable Eric Hofley told a press conference, describing the discovery as “disturbing” and “tragic beyond belief.”
He said he was unaware of any missing infants in the city. Even if it was not a case of foul play, he added, “You´re not allowed to store human remains in a storage locker.”
