Police: Remains of Full-Term Baby Boy Found in Fairfield, Maine, Garage

No arrests have been made

Maine State Police say human remains found in a Fairfield garage on Sunday were of a full-term baby boy.

Police said Tuesday that human remains that appeared to be the result of a recent pregnancy were found in a garage next to a mobile home on Norridgewock Road. On Wednesday, they confirmed that the remains were of a full-term baby boy.

"The body has been examined by the State Medical Examiner's Office and additional testing is taking place," state police spokesman Steve McCausland said Wednesday.

Police said the baby's parents have cooperated with the investigation and have been interviewed by detectives. They lived at the mobile home with their 3-year-old daughter, who is now staying with other relatives.

No arrests have been made.

Detectives have been gathering evidence from the home and the detached garage since Sunday, and are expected to be finished with that process tonight.
