Dead babies in Winnipeg storage unit ‘tragic beyond belief’

The discovery of several dead babies in a Winnipeg storage locker is “tragic beyond belief,” say police.

Three or four bodies were found Monday afternoon in various states of decomposition, said police spokesman Const. Eric Hofley.

Autopsies are planned on the remains to determine exactly how many there are and the cause of death, he said. The autopsies will also determine their age.

Hofley said the bodies were newborns or someone “of a very young age.” They were “certainly not children,” he said, calling the situation “very disturbing” and “tragic beyond belief.”

“All that information will hopefully be determined as the days progress. We will have further information tomorrow [Wednesday], I do know that for a fact”…
