A child-sized casket with a bag of organs inside, but no body, was found on a North Philadelphia sidewalk Monday night, according to reports.



The discovery was made about 9 p.m. on the 3100 block of West Clearfield Street across from Mount Vernon Cemetery.

Police Chief Inspector Scott Small told CBS3: “According to the medical examiner, [they] were in fact human organs. They believed they belonged to an infant or a child. What’s unusual is inside the coffin, other than the bag of organs, there was no body.”





Small said police are investigating. “There have been cases where people take remains or human bodies for whatever unusual reasons they decide, but we’re going to look into that,” he said.
