NEW YORK (AP) — Newborn twins have finally been laid to rest following a funeral service organized by the New York City police officers who are still working to find the person who killed the boys nearly a year ago.

About 20 NYPD officers attended the services at a Bronx funeral home on Saturday for the unidentified twins who have named Zeke and Zane by the police.

The boys were placed in a single white casket that was decorated with white flowers and a blue bow.

The superintendent of a Bronx apartment building discovered the bodies in November 2020 in the building’s courtyard.

Authorities determined they died from blunt force trauma.
