Autopsies were conducted Sunday on a mother and child found in the trunk of a vehicle northeast of Toronto, Durham Regional Police say.

Police discovered the bodies on Saturday morning after a citizen noticed the vehicle parked in a farmer’s field near the community of Sunderland.

“We’re hopeful that the post-mortem will shed some light as to the cause of death,” said Inspector David Brown. On Sunday night, the results of the autopsy had not yet been released.
