    A deceased 3-month-old baby was found in a roller suitcase on PATH train tracks in New Jersey on Wednesday, law enforcement sources told News 4.

    The infant was wrapped in a blanket inside the suitcase on the Newark-bound side of the Jersey City-Journal Square station, sources said.

    Sources said detectives were shaken up by the find and are working backwards to try and locate video from the tracks. 

    An autopsy on the baby's body is expected to be conducted Thursday. 

    It's not clear how long the baby's body had been left on the tracks or who left it there. 

    Chopper 4 footage from over the scene shows investigators gathered on the tracks underneath the Tonnelle Avenue overpass, near Newark Avenue. They appeared to be focused on a flipped-open suitcase on the side of the tracks.
