The Bronx Homicide Squad held the funeral for the newborns at the East End Funeral Home on Gunhill Road Saturday morning.

CLAREMONT, Bronx (WABC) -- A funeral was held Saturday for two infants who were found dead outside a Bronx apartment building last year.

The Bronx Homicide Squad held the funeral for the newborns at the East End Funeral Home on Gunhill Road Saturday morning.

The infants' death was ruled a homicide in April, but what led up to their tragic deaths remains a mystery.

The boys were discovered wrapped in brown paper outside the College Avenue building in the Claremont section by the superintendent on November 9.

The Medical Examiner determined their cause of death to be blunt force trauma to the skull.

Officials say the newborn boys were found on a back patio and that evidence suggested they had just been born.

There's a $10,000 reward for information that leads to an arrest, and anyone with such information is urged to call the NYPD's Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782).
