Remains of baby found at recycling plant
Lawrence, N.Y. (AP) - Authorities are investigating the remains of a human fetus found at a sanitation facility on Long Island.
Nassau County Police say a call came in just before 2:30 p.m. Tuesday that a baby was found not breathing inside the facility's recycling plant on Bay Boulevard in Lawrence.
When police arrived, they found the remains of a dead fetus. Police are investigating the case as a homicide.
Police say the medical examiner is conducting an investigation. The age and sex of the baby, or the cause of death, have yet to be determined.
A worker at the plant told Newsday that another worker found the baby in a trash bag on a conveyor belt.
