UPDATE: County officials released a preliminary autopsy report Tuesday regarding two infants who were found in a purple suitcase near a ditch on Feb. 16. 

According to a Facebook post made by the Cross County Sheriff’s Office, the preliminary autopsy report states the babies were approximately 32 to 34 weeks along, with one of the babies being a female. 

Officials are still waiting for further testing to determine race, sex, time, and manner of death from the Medical Examiner’s Office. 

The Sheriff’s Office says they are following all leads and have interview several individuals regarding the investigation. 

Anyone with any further information is asked to contact the Cross County Sheriff’s Office at: 870-238-5700. All calls will remain confidential.

ORIGINAL: An investigation continues after newborn twins were found dead inside a suitcase in Arkansas. 

The State Crime Lab expects the autopsies for the two babies to be done Tuesday morning. 

Until that’s complete, the Cross County Sheriff’s Office remains tight-lipped about who these babies were.
