A man has discovered the bodies of three babies hidden in a shed.
The 41-year-old was cleaning out his home in Le Mans, France, when he came across the gruesome find inside a locked cupboard on Monday.
He had been clearing out the property following the death of his wife, who had died from cancer weeks earlier.
The bodies of the infants were wrapped in plastic bags and clothing.
The remains did not appear to be from the same period, French channel BFMTV reported.
The advanced state of decomposition will likely make it difficult to determine the ages of the infants.
An autopsy will be carried out to determine the cause of death.
Investigations are underway.
