In a tragic and unsettling case, the Cleveland Police Department is diligently working to unravel the circumstances surrounding the death of two twin infants. Their bodies were discovered over the weekend in the Buckeye Shaker Square neighborhood.
The deceased infants were found on Saturday evening. The case is now under the scrutiny of the Cleveland Police Homicide Unit, as they are responsible for investigating all child fatalities, according to police spokesperson Sgt. Jennifer Ciaccia.
Little details are available regarding the circumstances leading up to the newborns’ deaths. The police have yet to disclose whether there were any signs of injuries or harm on the bodies.
Adding to the horrifying nature of the incident, local residents allege the infants were discovered in a waste bin situated at the rear of a residential property. One of the neighbors, who requested anonymity, claimed the discovery was made by a landscaper who was in the process of discarding yard waste.
Police are presently interviewing a woman believed to be the mother of the infants. While details about her identity are being withheld, including her age and whether she is a minor or an adult, it is known that she has not yet been formally charged or arrested in connection with the infants’ deaths.
The investigation is ongoing.
