UPDATE:

I-70 fatal crash: What we know about the Beavercreek family

Doctor’s office tipped Warren County about baby later found in backyard


A local doctor’s office alerted Carlisle police Friday that a Carlisle teenager might have delivered a stillborn infant, according to a police report.

Later that night, Carlisle police and Warren County Sheriff’s deputies dug up the remains of an infant in the backyard of a residence in the 100 block of Eagle Ridge Drive. The remains were taken to the Miami Valley Regional Crime Laboratory for analysis, said Lt. John Faine from the Warren County Sheriff’s Office.

Investigators think that the remains found had been buried for “maybe 10 to 12 weeks,” but the coroner will determine how long the remains were there.

Faine said initial reports led investigators to believe the remains were a stillborn baby, but Warren County Coroner Dr. Russell Uptegrove said it’s too early to determine whether human remains unearthed by authorities are from a stillborn baby.

FIRST REPORT: Remains found behind home in Carlisle believed to be stillborn baby

He added his department may never know if the baby was stillborn or alive at birth.

The Carlisle police report listed the mother as 18. This news agency isn’t naming her because she hasn’t been charged.

Faine said the investigation is continuing, and it may take one to two weeks before his department releases more information regarding the infant. He also refused to release the infant’s gender.

On Monday afternoon — unlike Friday night when a tent was erected in the backyard of the home on Eagle Ridge Drive — it was quiet on the street. No one answered the door at the home, and several neighbors refused comment or said they weren’t home Friday.

Carlisle Police Chief Mike Bruck told this news outlet on Monday afternoon the sheriff’s office was investigating, and he had nothing new to report.

Anyone with information about the incident is urged to contact the sheriff’s office, 513-695-1522.
