BERN TWP., Pa. - More questions than answers remain following the autopsy on a baby found dead inside her parents' apartment in Berks County earlier this week.
Dr. Neil Hoffman, a forensic pathologist at Reading Hospital, performed the autopsy on Harper Trump on Thursday, but the coroner told 69 News that his office will have nothing to release regarding how the 6-month-old baby died until the autopsy report is complete.
When that's done, he said, all information will come from the Spring Township Police Department, which is leading the investigation.
Police, responding to a tip, found the infant's body early Tuesday morning. It was concealed in a container of cat litter in the crawl space of her parents' apartment at 1350 West Wyomissing Court in Spring Township, law enforcement authorities said.
The baby's parents, Shaun Oxenreider and Samantha Trump, were charged with concealing the death of a child, abuse of a corpse, and criminal conspiracy.
More charges against the couple are possible pending the outcome of the baby's autopsy, police said.
In the meantime, Oxenreider remains in the Berks County Jail on $250,000 bail; Trump, who is pregnant, is still hospitalized for treatment of a seizure she suffered when police showed up at her apartment late Monday night, officials said.
