Coroner investigate discovery of baby's body

A bizarre find by church cleanup crews now has a county coroner trying to identify a baby's body. Volunteers with the New Zion United Methodist Church on Newtown Pike in Scott County found an unearthed casket at the cemetery behind the church.
The Scott County Coroner says there's no record of the casket being buried there. He's now attempting to identify the infant inside.
The pastor says the infant may have been buried above a woman who is buried in the plot. He says it's common for infants to be buried above older relatives.
The Scott County Sheriff's Department is now conducting a death investigation and are asking anyone with information contact them.
