Suspected Human Remains Found

ARANSAS PASS, TEXAS –  Late Thursday afternoon (1/5/2017), Aransas Pass Police Detectives received information of a deceased, buried baby in the 1000 block of North Houston Street. Detectives began their investigation at the scene, a residence, and located the burial site. Within the shallow grave, they found bones that appeared to be human. Detectives turned the bones over to the Nueces County Medical Examiner for further analysis.

A short time ago (1/6/2017), detectives received confirmation that the bones were human. The baby’s cause of death has not been determined, and detectives continue to investigate leads.

As more information becomes available, we will update our media partners and community. Unfortunately, this is an ongoing investigation, so certain details will not be released.
