A woman discovered a decaying fetus wrapped in what appeared to be a woman's blue top buried in ten inches of mud. The woman, who did not want to be named, is the owner of the rented house and was doing some yard work when she dug up the fetus.
Police classified the case as an unattended death and are awaiting the autopsy outcome. They did not say whether it was full-term. Homicide investigators questioned the tenants, neighbors and the woman. No arrests were made.
Jean Domion, a neighbor, said she doesn't really know the tenants next door, but said she recalls seeing a pregnant woman there a couple of months ago but noticed nothing unusual in the week before the discovery.
