San Antonio police believe bone fragments found under a house may belong to a newborn who was buried alive 36 years-ago. Police say it is too early to tell if the fragments are actual evidence. The search began Thursday after a Las Vegas woman told police she gave birth to the baby when she was 14 years-old. The woman claims her mother wrapped the child in a plastic bag and buried it in their back yard. No charges have been filed as the investigation continues.
