Police say they have discovered the remains of as many as four dead infants in a storage locker in the central Canadian city of Winnipeg.

Winnipeg Const. Eric Hofley said Tuesday concerned employees at the storage locker company called police Monday and, once inside, police found what appeared to be the remains of up to four infants. He says the remains were so decomposed, it's not clear if police are dealing with three or four bodies.

He says victims appear to be "very, very young" and could be newborns.

Autopsies were being conducted.

He says police are talking to a few people, but the remains don't appear to be linked to any infants that have been reported missing.
