BERLIN >> German police said Friday that the bodies of seven babies have been found at an apartment in a Bavarian town.

Police say a local woman found the body of one baby on Thursday afternoon at the apartment in Wallenfels, near the Czech border, and called the police emergency number. Police then found several more bodies in a room at the apartment.

The dpa news agency earlier reported that a doctor had found the dead babies.

Police and prosecutors now believe there were seven dead babies, police said in a statement. The bodies are being examined by forensic experts, but the examinations “will take some time in view of their poor condition, in some cases,” and results shouldn’t be expected before the beginning of next week, it added.

Authorities so far have been unable to find the property’s former resident, a 45-year-old woman, but are questioning several other people, police said.

It was unclear how long the babies had been dead or who, if anyone, was living there at the time of the discovery.
