Cordele- The Crisp County Sheriff's Department and the GBI are investigating a possible baby's death five years ago.

Thursday night, law enforcement officials were digging in this area off of West 25th Avenue in Cordele.

Investigators received information about an incident five years ago where a 13-year-old girl may have delivered a still-born baby and then buried it in a shallow grave behind a mobile home where her grandmother lives.

"We first went through it with our hands, the investigators did. Then we brought in a tractor and went a little deeper to see if we could locate anything," said Sheriff Donnie Haralson.

So far, investigators haven't found the remains of an infant. The girl in question is now 18-years-old and is in the Crisp County jail on unrelated charges.
