COMMERCE CITY, Colo.—Police have a suspect in a case of a fetus found at a wastewater treatment plant that was likely flushed down a toilet.
Police did not say how they focused on a suspect after the fetus was found Sunday morning at the Metro Wastewater Reclamation plant, which treats 140-million gallons of water a day from a 300-square-mile area.
Commerce City police officer, Lanissa Blevens told Denver station KDVR-TV that based on size, the fetus was in the second trimester of gestation, somewhere between 4 to 6 months.
Blevens said the suspect could face charges of abuse of corpse, to possible concealment of death.

What else you are supposed to do with a miscarried baby? This should not be news it is gross. It's along the lines of finding an absurdly huge turd.
AND MY REPLY:
The callous disregard for human life on this thread is chilling for
the future of our nation. This was a tiny baby created in God's image
whose mother may have accidentally or not so accidentally sent her
offspring to a watery grave.
To compare a human life to excrement, as some here have, is
beyond the pale.
But it does reveal much about the hard hearts toward pre-born babies
and those who always want to dismiss the humanity and dignity
of the pre-born for their political advantage.
