“The Prosecutor’s Homicide Unit and Port Authority Police are on the scene investigating the body of an infant found just off the train tracks underneath The Tonnelle Avenue Bridge just off Broadway in Jersey City. More info to follow,” the HCPO tweeted minutes ago.

Sources with knowledge of the investigation said that the baby was initially discovered inside a suitcase.

A spokesman for the prosecutor’s office did not immediately return an email seeking further comment and no further information was immediately available.
