    thanks! I would think the method of "disposing" these remains would make it a criminal investigation...can you bury remains outside of a cemetary in TX??

    Remains Of Several Infants Found In Texas
    Skeletal Remains Found In Trailer Park
    Aug 24, 2009 8:42 am US/Pacific
    <snipped>
    Investigators in Tarrant County are looking into the discovery of skeletal remains found Sunday. The bones are thought to be those of multiple infants.

    The remains were found at a mobile home park in an unincorporated part of Tarrant County, located between the cities of Mansfield and Burleson.

    Skeletal remains were found in this same location in March 2008.

    According to Tarrant County Sheriff's Department spokesman Terry Grisham, details about these most recent skeletal remains are still a mystery. Officials are still unsure if a crime was even committed.

    Infant Skeletal Remains Found In Tarrant County
    Aug 24, 2009 9:46 am US/Central
    <snipped>
    The remains were found at a mobile home park in the 6000 block of Tranquilty Circle. This is in an unincorporated part of Tarrant County, located between the cities of Mansfield and Burleson.

    Grisham says the location is a mobile home park where people can rent trailers in which to live.

    Neighbors tell us the land owner's son was cleaning up Sunday after a tenant moved out. They say he found a suitcase or box that contained a garbage bag. When he opened the bag, neighbors say, he found bones inside.

    But they're not sure if a crime has been committed?

    Unless of course, they were medical specimens. But you'd think they would have been stored differently.

    These infant bones were in a garbage bag, FGS! Not sure if a crime was committed? These were tiny babies bones and if there was no foul play, why were they not decently buried?

    I would say that the authorities are wrong and that there was some sort of crime committed!

    Tarrant County Sheriff's Office spokesman Terry Grisham told the Dallas-Fort Worth television station KTVT that authorities are not sure if a crime was committed, but the medical examiner and forensic anthropologists were studying the remains found Sunday.

    Neighbors told the television station that the landlord's relatives found the bones in a garbage bag among items left by a tenant who had moved out of a mobile home...


    Still trying to figure out how no crime whatsoever could have been committed...

    The recent tenants were a brother and sister who are not being named.
    The remains found in March 2008 were found in a suitcase about 30 feet from the same trailer.
    This article states that the first set of remains was found in a bag under the mobile home. The second set was in a plastic container under the mobile home.
    Remains confirmed to be those of infants.

    Edited to add:
    Could this possibly be someone's way of dealing with unwanted pregnancies? I'm looking into missing infants in Tarrant County.

    Poor babies.

    I did a search but came up empty. Were the remains found in 2008 that of an infant? I was trying to find out if they identified the remains from 2008 but couldn't find an article about the discovery of those set of remains.

    Infants' remains found under Texas mobile home
    August 24, 2009
    updated 2 hours, 42 minutes ago
    <snipped>
    The skeletal remains of two infants were found underneath a rural Texas trailer, police said Monday, in the same area where another set of infant remains was found last year.

    One of the mobile homes had recently become vacant, and the owner was cleaning it up, Grisham said. The owner pulled back the metal "skirt" around the bottom of the mobile home and was "digging around in there," and found a plastic bag, Grisham said.

    When the man opened it up, he found a box, and inside the box he found the "bones of a very young infant," Grisham told CNN. He continued to look, and found another plastic container with more remains inside, of a "similar-aged infant," before calling 911, Grisham said.

    In 2008, the same man called police to report that he had found a suitcase in the same area, in an overgrown field a distance away from the mobile homes, while dumping leaves. When he used a knife to cut into the suitcase, a set of infant bones were found, Grisham said. The medical examiner's office was unable to determine a cause of death because the remains were skeletal, although no bones were broken, he said.

    "We worked the thing as best we could, without any more to go on than we had," but the investigation stalled, Grisham said.

    Police have contacted the two people -- a brother and sister -- who recently moved out of the trailer, he said. The two have been cooperative with authorities, he said. They were interviewed separately, but both told police they had no idea the remains were there, Grisham said.

    Authorities and the medical examiner's office remained at the scene Monday, Grisham said, and plan to use cadaver dogs at the site Monday afternoon in an effort to determine whether more remains were present.

    Infants&#8217; Remains Found Under Texas Home
    Published: August 24, 2009
    <snipped>
    The mobile home is near a field near Rendon, about 15 miles southeast of Fort Worth, where bones of another infant were found in a suitcase last year, raising the specter of a multiple homicide.

    Investigators were trying to determine how the three children died. &#8220;We don&#8217;t know if they were stillborn, late-term abortions or born alive and killed,&#8221; said Terry Grisham, a spokesman for the Tarrant County Sheriff&#8217;s Office. &#8220;We cannot even confirm a crime was committed.&#8221;

    The male child found in a suitcase in a nearby field on April 9, 2008, was never identified, Mr. Metcalf said. Mr. Southern also found that body, the authorities said.

    In that case, the remains were too decomposed for coroners to determine a cause of death. The medical examiner plans to compare the genetic fingerprint of the skeleton in the suitcase to the two newly found skeletons, Mr. Metcalf said.

    Mr. Grisham said detectives had found no evidence last year linking the first body to anyone living in the three mobile homes on the property. They are now looking for earlier tenants of the home where the two skeletons were found, he said.

    Dogs trained to find cadavers were expected to arrive in the evening to check for more bodies.
