The bodies of four babies have been discovered in a storage locker in the western Canadian city of Winnipeg, police said on Tuesday.
Police said they are "speaking with a number of individuals" as part of their investigation into the gruesome discovery, while an autopsy was underway.
"It's too early to say what has transpired," Constable Eric Hofley told a press conference, describing the discovery as "disturbing" and "tragic beyond belief." He said he was unaware of any missing infants in the city. Even if it was not a case of foul play, he added, "You're not allowed to store human remains in a storage locker."
U-Haul said employees at the storage facility made the discovery on Monday afternoon while taking inventory of a delinquent storage locker.
