    Dear God in Heaven.
    Unless I provide a link, every one of my posts are to be considered rumor, Speculation, or simply MY OWN OPINION.

    “It is better to remain silent at the risk of being thought a fool, than to talk and remove all doubt of it.”


    The missing and murdered cannot cry out for Justice. It is the duty for the living to do so for them.

    From second link:

    "Police say it doesn't appear the children died recently, and nothing found in the home explained the remains. The police chief says the bones were small enough to fit in someone's hand."

    Two - could they be twins, or from two separate pregnancies? Her children or someone else's? Lots of questions.

    Years ago, I read something like this about babies found in an attic in a foot locker after an elderly woman died. No one ever knew she was pregnant. She lived alone, never married, etc. Her babies were stillborn premature deliveries at home (after forensic?) I guess shame and unable to bury them might be a reason???

    Very macabre. The poor son. This would leave a lot of unanswered questions.
    A horrible thing to find out and also deal with the death of your mother.

    Did she miscarry, or give birth to two tiny babies, so small that they could fit in a hand, so small that they couldn't survive, and she did the wrong things with their remains?

    This woman's son knew that she had been pregnant, as did everyone that knew them. He was cleaning out his mother's attic.

    "A man found the remains in a locked footlocker in mid-December while cleaning out his mother's home in North Canton" (Cleveland area).

    Hi Otto are you speaking abut this woman? Where did you see that the son and other people knew she had been pregnant? At 66 years of age it must have been many years ago. JMO

    Police are still investigating, but estimate that the remains could be five to 40 years old. The trailer park manager told NewsChannel5 that he saw bones and an infant skull in the foot locker with a deteriorating blanket.

    Wow that's a huge gap. 5 to 40 years old.

    A footlocker is a smallish trunk, no wider than a single bed because it's made to sit at the foot of the bed, so called a foot locker.

    One of the newspaper pictures showed a footlocker -- not sure if it is this family's or a generic picture.

    The adult son said that he remembered moving that footlocker from his Mother's house in Louisville (Kentucky???) to the mobile home in Ohio.

    Anyone remember the woman in Texas who hid three or four or five deceased infants around & under her mobile home?

    The remains have been identified as the woman's twin babies, most probably stillborn (both sets of remains could fit into the palm of one hand). About 40 years old.

    They are being handed over to the family for burial and police say that's about all they can do. Given the circumstances, that's entirely understandable, I think.

    'Interviews with friends and family revealed nothing to explain the remains.'

    The mother is named at the link.
