SAN ANTONIO (AP) – Authorities say the remains of a baby found in a trunk during a drug search in Texas were beyond decomposed.   

Bexar County Sheriff Javier Salazar says the trunk containing the remains was discovered Tuesday inside a closet of a home near San Antonio. Salazar says the remains were in a desiccated or dried-up state.   

He says, "At this point, it’s too early to tell if it’s a homicide."   

An autopsy will be performed to help determine the cause of death and the baby’s identity. Salazar says the baby appeared to be less than a year old.   

Salazar says a dozen people were found inside the house along with various drug paraphernalia. Authorities were searching the home on a drug warrant.
