The remains of two mummified babies wrapped in 1930s newspaper were found in the basement of a Los Angeles apartment building.
At this time, there are no answers as to how the babies died and when they died.
"The coroner has done an autopsy on both (babies) and has given us an indication that, at this point, there ... is no determination of death, as to the cause of death," Los Angeles Police Department Capt. Fabian Lizzaraga said at a news conference.
The bodies were found last month from two women that were cleaning out the storage room in the basement of the apartment building. According to the LAPD, the owner told the women to clean out the storage room, which has been abandoned for many years.
The women found antique trunks with doctor’s bags inside one of them. The LAPD said that the bodies were wrapped with 1930s Los Angeles Times newspaper inside the trunks. Along with the bodies contained 1932 Olympic Games ticket stubs, a diamond necklace, and wedding photos.
