RIVERSIDE (CBSLA.com) — Remains have been reportedly found buried in a shallow grave in Riverside, police said Friday.

Authorities discovered the remains Thursday night in a field after receiving a tip that a possible body was buried there.

CBS2’s Jasmine Viel reported one detective was seen carrying a small white bundle away from the scene.

According to Viel, the investigation began Wednesday after a child was brought into a hospital with illegal drugs in its system. The parents told protective services that they had buried their other baby that did not survive birth a year ago near a homeless encampment, claiming they did not know what to do with the body.

It is unclear if the remains belong to a human.

At this time, no arrests have been made.

The circumstances of the situation surrounding the couple remain under investigation.
