Riverside Police are investigating the death of a female infant the agency found buried in a yard, Major Adam Colon told the Dayton Daily News and WHIO.
Addalynn Marie George, born Dec. 21, 2017, was found dead Sunday evening, according to Riverside police records and the Montgomery County Coroner's Office.
There are no suspects in custody and the investigation is ongoing, Colon said. The case is being investigated as an abuse of corpse case, police records show.
“It’s tragic,” Colon said.
Riverside officers went to a home on the 4500 block of Richland Avenue around 5:28 p.m. Sunday, Colon said. The Montgomery County Coroner’s Office said it was dispatched to the house around 11:20 p.m.
The coroner’s office said no cause of death is determined. An autopsy was performed Monday, Colon said.
A police dispatch log shows a Kettering police officer reported the incident to Riverside police.
The infant was discovered with the help of the Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation, Colon said. Evidence was collected and digital images were taken, according to the log.
