Neighbours in the area told Global News they saw what appeared to be a woman being taken away by police the same night, while another said they saw a young child being loaded into an ambulance. However, on Sunday afternoon CPS said at this time no arrests have been made.

Police said more information is expected to come once an autopsy is completed, which could take months due to specialized medical testing that must be done following infant deaths.
