Dead Children Discovered at Pedophiles House

Police are excavating at a former children’s home on the Channel Island of Jersey after finding a child’s remains there.

Jersey’s Deputy Chief Police Officer Lenny Harper says information from a child abuse investigation led officers to the remains. He says officers fear other bodies may be hidden on the grounds of the children’s home, which closed in 1986.

He says police don’t not know whether the remains were male or female, but an expert confirmed they did not belong to an adult.

Harper says the investigation began in November when a number of former staff members were arrested on suspicion of pedophile crimes.

Jersey’s Chief Minister Frank Walker says he felt “deep horror and sadness” at the discovery in St. Martin on the island’s east coast.
