Mummified Baby Found In Florida Self-Storage Unit

(AP) DELRAY BEACH, Fla. A partially mummified baby was found wrapped in newspaper in a warehouse self-storage unit and is believed to have been born sometime in the 1950s, authorities said.

The remains were found Monday in 1950s-era papers inside a suitcase contained inside a second suitcase.

The storage unit had been rented by a couple in 1996, but the man died several years ago and the woman died in the past year, said police spokesman Officer Jeff Messer.

"We're not giving out any names yet because we're finding more than one or two people had access to their warehouse," Messer said Tuesday.

Investigators believe it's a "very safe bet" the baby was born as early as the 1950s, but until the autopsy is completed, details remain murky, Messer said. An autopsy was scheduled Tuesday.

The body was found by the couple's daughter, who came from New Jersey after being told that the contents of the storage unit would be auctioned off because the rent had not been paid, police said.
