Police digging for babies' remains at Queensland home

Police digging for babies' remains at Queensland home

Excavations are continuing today at a rural Queensland property, where the remains of several babies are believed to be buried.

Police believe a number of babies were born in secret at the property near Gin Gin, in the state’s southeast, during the later 1990s, and early 21st century. 

Homicide detectives and forensic experts arrived at the scene yesterday, and the investigation is expected to continue at least for the next day.

Detective Inspector Mick Dowie says a family that previously lived at the house is under investigation.

But police say they cannot reveal the number of children’s remains they are looking for, or their ages.

It’s believed police have been gathering evidence on the case for months, after a person came forward with information.
