Police did discover a child's body Thursday behind an apartment building on State Street, but have not said whether it's the body of 4-month-old Rayen.

The cause of death for the child that was found is also still unknown.

"Due to the condition that the remains were found in, the autopsy and identification process is going to take an extended period of time," Sgt. Matthew Dearing said Monday.

Dearing said the case remains an active investigation. He said no one is in custody in connection to the case and would not disclose where Puleski is at this time.
