THE DEATH of a five-year-old boy whose body was stuffed in a suitcase remains a mystery after an autopsy failed to determine a cause.
Indiana State Police are reaching out to agencies across the country in hopes of finding some answers after the horrific discovery last week.
The child's body was found in a suitcase with Las Vegas tags all over it on Saturday in the rural areas of Washington County.
A mushroom hunter made the initial discovery Indiana State Police Sergeant Carey Huls told a Fox News affiliate in Kentucky.
Police are asking for the public's help to identify the young boy who they describe as a Black boy who is approximately 4 feet tall with a slim build and short hair.
The search to find answers to the case has spread across the country.

"We're trying to spread that net as far as we can until we get that call, that information, that leads to that tip of the identification," Huls told the news outlet.
No one has come forward with information on who the boy was or who took care of him as of yet.
One of the police's top concerns is to find out who was responsible for the child.
"Right now, we need to know who that person or people were that were responsible for him so we can find out exactly what happened. And that will ultimately change the direction of this investigation," Huls told the news outlet.

An autopsy that was conducted on Tuesday didn't reveal how the boy died but police were able to find out his age by using dental records.
Police are still awaiting toxicology results which can take up to six weeks to complete.
Police didn't say if foul play was involved in the boy's death.
"We're obviously not going to do anything that will jeopardize our case, but people can take it at face value when you have a child who's 5, they don't take care of themselves," Huls told the news outlet.
A resident, who didn't want to be identified, commented on the boy's death calling it "heartbreaking."
"Devastating to our community," she told the news outlet."How could someone do this to such an innocent child?"
