Authorities have released more information about human remains found earlier this month in western Iowa’s Audubon County. The State Medical Examiner has identified the skeletal remains found earlier this month in Audubon County as those of a full-term infant.
Forensic tests show the age as ranging from birth to one-month in age. The child’s skeleton was found by trappers checking trap lines about four miles southeast of Kimballton in southeastern Audubon County on November Eighth.
Audubon County Sheriff Todd Johnson says there are indications that the death did not happen at the location where the baby was found. Law enforcement and the State Medical Examiner are still trying to determine how long the remains were at the site.
