Daphne police are investigating what appears to be the cremated remains of a "stillborn baby" found in a powder blue box on the beach at Bayfront Park on Sunday afternoon.

Sgt. Jason Vannoy told Lagniappe a person walking the beach found the container in the sand at around 4:30 p.m. on Jan. 22. The person thought it was a tackle box and opened it to find a blue and silver funeral urn and blanket.
