(CNN) — Police in Hendersonville, North Carolina, said Tuesday they were interviewing a man and a woman in connection with the discovery of a days-old infant’s body in a grocery store restroom.

The body of the newborn girl, who appeared to be 2 or 3 days old, was found Sunday by janitorial staff in a trash can in the women’s restroom of a Bi-Lo grocery store, according to Hendersonville Police Capt. David Adams. It was not clear how long the baby had been dead, Adams said on Tuesday, and police were awaiting autopsy results.

The store provided police with surveillance video, which officers examined and then released to local media outlets in hopes of identifying two people, a man and a woman, who had entered the store.

Adams said the woman was shown on the video carrying a large bag that appeared to be dragging the ground, and she went immediately to the women’s restroom after entering the store. The woman remained in the restroom for at least four minutes and when she left she was wearing different clothes and the bag “appeared to be significantly lighter,” Adams said.

The airing of the surveillance video produced several tips, he said, and two people were taken in for questioning Tuesday afternoon.

A news release Tuesday from Hendersonville police said the two “individuals of interest” had been identified and, “Criminal charges may be pending following the final autopsy results and a consultation with the Henderson County District Attorney’s Office.”

Police did not release the names of the two.
