WICHITA, Kan. (KSNW) – The remains of a child have been found in a concrete structure that was in a house in the 2000 block of South Vine.
According to Officer Charley Davidson, officers were called to the home on Saturday after a property owner cleaning out a rental property alerted police to a suspicious concrete structure.
Police removed the structure and found the remains of a child, about three years old, inside.
Police said residents of the house, a 40-year-old man and a 36-year-old woman, were arrested earlier in the week and are being held in the Sedgwick County Jail on different charges associated with a child custody case.
The investigation into the child’s death is ongoing. Authorities said they have a tentative identification on the child but a confirmation is being coordinated through the Sedgwick County Medical Examiner.
Davidson said any updates and additional information will be released Tuesday morning.
