BLACKSTONE, Mass. (AP) – Authorities haven’t ruled out the possibility that there are more bodies inside a squalid Massachusetts home where three dead babies have been found.

Prosecutors say the bodies of three infants were found Thursday inside a Blackstone home infested with vermin and soiled diapers. Four other children were removed by authorities last month.

Worcester District Attorney Joseph Early Jr. says the house was in “deplorable condition.” Authorities don’t know when or how the babies died, or their ages and genders.

He says the search of the house could take several days and the possibility of finding more bodies hasn’t been ruled out.

No charges have been filed in connection with the deaths, but a woman who lived in the home is scheduled to be arraigned Friday on a witness intimidation charge.
