Last Friday, police responded to a call for the Little Lass Softball Fields in Smyrna, after a witness said they saw what seemed to be human remains. Upon further investigation, police said they believed the remains are those of a young child less than 10 years old. When the fire department was involved in the investigation, they found evidence of a fire on/near the crime scene. More recently, police have discovered that the child’s remains are not from a child in Delaware, so they are reaching out to other states on the east coast. As of right now, the police and fire department are still investigating and have not made any more statements.
