SMITHFIELD, N.C. — Neighbors are still shocked after the remains of a child were found at a home in Johnson County.

The medical examiner confirmed that the remains found in two trash bags underneath a home belong to an infant, according to WTVD.

The remains were found when someone tried to run a cable under a home located at 102 Hartley Drive in Smithfield.

Ricky Williams, who’s lived in the area for 12 years said the whole situation is very disturbing.

“Hurts me in my heart, when you become a man of God and a child like that, has to go through something like that, that’s disturbing to me,” Williams said. “I visit those folks, I know those people. Very friendly, I love them, they’re good people. And the only thing you can do is ask why? How could you?”

The woman who lives in the home was identified in warrants as Pamela McBride. McBride told detectives her daughter, Bridgette Morgan Smith, is addicted to cocaine and methamphetamine.

In a warrant, McBride also told detectives her daughter has been pregnant at least 10 times, but she only knows where three of the children are at this point.

Smith still hasn’t been located.

Deputies told WTVD they may be able to release more information in the next few days.
