According to authorities, a newborn baby’s remains were discovered on Thursday at a recycling facility in Massachusetts.
At the same recycling plant, a newborn baby girl’s remains were discovered in April.
The Zero Waste Solutions recycling business in Rochester called the Rochester Police Department at around 10:40 a.m., according to a statement from the Plymouth County District Attorney’s office.
One of the recycling facility employees reportedly told police that they discovered “what appeared to be the body of a human baby in the recycling products.”
“The caller reported that infant remains were found within a trash collection that was trucked to the facility for disposal,” Plymouth County District Attorney Timothy Cruz said.
As officials responded to the plant, all processing was halted, according to the police.
According to the district attorney’s office, the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner in Massachusetts has assumed control and will ascertain the cause of death.
On April 27, a baby girl’s remains were found at the same institution in a similar scenario.
The infant had been dead for at least a week, according to the authorities, and had been dumped in the trash stream of a Martha’s Vineyard facility.
“The baby was within a trash collection that appears to have originated from Martha’s Vineyard and was shipped to that facility for disposal,” state police said in an April 29 statement.
As of right now, no further information regarding the incident is available.
