Baby Doe may have a sister: Jane Doe. Toledo police found the body of a baby girl Monday in a car that had been towed to the police impound lot.

That car is registered to Jacob Cisneros, the man charged last week in the case of a dead baby boy found in an abandoned car on Vaness Dr. nearly three years ago.

The Jacob Cisneros and his wife, Jenna, have been charged with involuntary manslaughter in the case of the baby found on Vaness.

Detectives say DNA in the Baby Doe case linked the baby boy to the Cisneros couple. An autopsy of the baby found in that abandoned car on Vaness in May of 2017 revealed no evidence of trauma and toxicology reports were negative.

They faced a judge Tuesday, but their case was continued.

While it's possible at least Jacob could face more charges in connection with the second dead baby, Toledo's police chief says it's too soon to say at this point.

"Right now we have two different children in two different vehicles in two different locations," said TPD Chief George Kral.

The Lucas County Coroner says a mummified female infant was found inside an abandoned car Monday. No word on a name, an exact age, or a cause of death.

"This is about as fresh a crime investigation as humanly possible. We literally executed the search warrant yesterday," said Chief Kral.

Toledo police report the car Jane Doe was found in is registered to Jacob Cisneros.

"Investigators while they were going, while they were speaking and speaking to the suspects in this, developed some information which led them to that second vehicle," said Chief Kral.

The Chief says he can't release where the second vehicle was found, but says it was towed to the Toledo Police impound lot on February 7, and that's where the second baby's body was discovered Monday.

"The reason we towed the car is because detectives developed some new leads," said Chief Kral.

Lot 61 at Meadowbrook Estates off South Reynolds Road is the last known address of the Cisneros couple. It's where they were arrested last week.

None of the neighbors 13abc spoke with knew them well and say the parents moved in just a few months ago.

John Noll lives next door. He describes the family as secretive, but says he had no idea what they were hiding.

Noll says he saw three other children living there and he's worried about them.

"How long are they going to have to deal with that? Maybe their own life. You don't know," said Noll.

Police confirmed that the Cisneros have three other children who are now in the care of other family members.

The death investigations of both Baby Doe and Jane Doe are active and ongoing. Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 419-255-1111.
