Police say officers found the bag containing the body on Monday in Worcester (WUS'-tur) after talking to a man who reported an unusual odor.

Authorities in MA say two people are charged with concealing the death of a newborn whose remains were discovered in a garbage bag in the woods behind a home. They say a "garbage bag emitting a strong odor" was later found in the woods behind a home at 384 Lake Avenue.

While officers were on the scene, they allegedly observed two people walking on the railroad tracks behind the address. The railroad tracks are private property and there is a prominently posted "No Trespassing" sign.

Further questioning led to the arrest of 36-year-old Jennifer Rheaume, who apparently frequents the house, as well as another nearby Lake Avenue home.

After an investigation, police placed Santiago and Rheaume under arrest and charged them with removal of a human body and concealment of the death of a child.

The Department of Children and Families was notified of the investigation.

"The cause and time of the baby's death are now unknown, pending autopsy results", police said in a statement.
