CAMERON, Wis. (AP) -- A Barron County sheriff's detective says it's unlikely robbers got any recognizable bones when they dug up a baby's 83-year-old grave.
Authorities have said they think the crime was a Halloween prank committed by teenagers.
Detective Dave Kuffel said Monday that a bag of marbles or some other tokens or trinkets may have been in Baby Locke's coffin. But forensic pathologists believe the baby's bones were so small that they had decomposed to the point of being unrecognizable.
Kuffel says there are no suspects in the late October robbery at a rural cemetery in western Wisconsin.
He says investigators are trying to determine whether a billfold found about a mile from the cemetery around the time of the theft is linked to the crime.
