NAMPA, Idaho (AP) — Police in southwestern Idaho have launched an investigation after finding skeletal remains of an infant underneath a deck of a Nampa home.
According to the Nampa Police Department, the bones were found Aug. 15 while construction workers were remodeling a deck at a rental home.
Nampa Police Sgt. Joe Ramirez says the death is being investigated as a homicide. However, the cause of death is still unknown.
The police department has brought in a forensic anthropologist to examine the skeletal remains to determine the age of the baby and how long ago it died.
Ramirez says the homeowners are not suspects in the baby's death.
