ROCHESTER, Mass. (WPRI) — An investigation is underway after a disturbing discovery was made at a recycling facility in Rochcester for the second time this year.
The town’s police department issued a press release Thursday saying “what appeared to be the body of a human baby” was found by an employee at Zero Waste Solutions on Cranberry Highway.
Police said the 911 call came in around 10:40 a.m. and all processing at the plant was stopped.
Massachusetts State Police and the Plymouth County District Attorney’s Office confirmed on Friday that the remains of a newborn infant were found in a trash collection that was trucked to the facility for disposal.
All three agencies are now investigating, and police said the medical examiner’s office will determine the cause of the baby’s death.
Anyone with information is asked to call Trooper David Wohlerat (508) 894-2648.
Back in April, the remains of a newborn baby girl were found at Zero Waste Solutions.
