    Police are digging up a property in the Bundaberg region, which may be the burial site for several concealed child births from the late 1990s and early 2000s.
    Homicide and child trauma taskforce investigators have declared the Gin Gin property a crime scene as they excavate a small area of the site and conduct scientific examinations.
    By 2.30pm on Monday, cold case homicide Detective Inspector Mick Dowie said no remains had been found but police would continue searching for up to three days.

    He said the former occupants of the rural property were being investigated, and the people currently living there were not persons of interest.

    The inspector declined to comment on how many bodies may be buried at the site and their identities, whether the former occupants were cooperating with police, or how investigators were tipped off.
    "We're investigating information in relation to the concealment of a number of births. There may be evidence there of human remains, and that's the purpose of the excavation," he told Fairfax Media.
    He said police had been looking into the information for "quite some time now".
    "We know who we're investigating. We know the family concerned," he said.

    I wonder who the person was who tipped them off and started this search? I'm wondering if it was a family member?
