(Wichita, Kansas) - Authorities say the remains of a three-year-old child was found this weekend in a concrete structure inside a house.

Police say they were called to the scene Saturday after the property owner complained of an odor from the concrete structure. Officials later found the remains inside that structure. 

"It was a green trap, but you can see it was a box, if you would," said Fernando Ruiz, neighbor. "Heavy...looked like, you hate to say it, but a small coffin because it was the size of a toddler bed. Very heavy. Took a forklift to get it out."

It's unclear how or when the child died. 

Two people, who reside in the home, were arrested last week in connection to a child custody case and are being held in the Sedgwick County Jail. 

State officials say, one of those arrested is connected to a three-year-old who went missing back in July. But police have not said if that's the child found dead.
