Sources tell me investigators are looking for possible aborted babies in the backyard of Ariel Castro's house.—

Editor’s note: This post has been corrected for clarification. Current reporting is not clear on whether investigators are searching for the remains of babies miscarried due to physical abuse or babies killed by medical or chemical abortions.
Earlier today, WKYC’s Tom Meyer reported that the three women held prisoner for a decade in a Cleveland home had gotten pregnant as a result of being raped by their captors. As many as five unborn babies died after the women were beaten.
Now, authorities are reportedly combing the captors’ yard for bodies of “aborted babies.”
Investigators say no human remains were discovered during a search of the property at 2207 Seymour.
