DETROIT, Nov. 29 (UPI) -- A fetus found in a Detroit sewage treatment plant could have come from anywhere in Wayne County, police said.

Workers at the Detroit Water and Sewerage Department plant found the fetus Friday afternoon, The Detroit News reported. It appeared to be at 3- to 4-months gestation.

Second Deputy Chief James Tate said that there is no proof a crime has been committed. He suggested that the fetus is most likely the result of a miscarriage.
