Coroner identifies infant's body found in unearthed casket

Investigators are learning more about who was inside an unearthed casket in Georgetown.

The Scott County coroner now says the body is that of a 1-year-old baby boy.

Crews working on a water line on Newtown Pike in Scott County, near the Fayette County line, found the casket.

It likely came from the cemetery at the Methodist church in New Zion.

The coroner told the Georgetown News-Graphic the boy died of natural causes in 1993, and had likely been buried in the same grave as an older relative.
