Police investigating child porn case find human remains stuffed in tote inside Trinidad apartment

TRINIDAD, Colo. — Police in Trinidad are conducting a death investigation after officers came upon a gruesome discovery Tuesday.

According to Trinidad Police, officers conducting a search at an apartment complex on an unrelated case discovered human remains stuffed inside a plastic storage tote.

Police were serving a search warrant at the unit, located at 413 North Avenue, in connection with an ongoing computer crime investigation, which police say may be linked to a nationwide child pornography ring. Details of that case have yet to be released. 

Once the remains were discovered, police stopped their search in the initial case the warrant was issued for and secured the apartment. However, police say both investigations remain active. 

The condition of the remains is making identification difficult, police say. The Colorado Bureau of Investigation has been called in to assist in the investigation and identification of the remains.
