Police: Body parts found in suburban Detroit sewer

Authorities say remains may be improperly disposed medical waste

ASSOCIATED PRESS

STERLING HEIGHTS, Mich.  — Authorities say body parts have been found in a sewer in suburban Detroit for the third time in just over a year.

Sterling Heights police say the remains were found Wednesday by workers making repairs.

A statement from police says there’s a strong possibility the parts are medical waste that was improperly put into the sewer.

The Detroit News reports three pieces each measure 2-by-2 inches. The Detroit Free Press reports the Macomb County medical examiner’s office says DNA samples will be submitted for additional testing.

Officials have said partial remains found in August 2012 in a sewer in Sterling Heights came from a woman, but not the same woman whose body parts were discovered in December 2012 in a sewer line in the nearby community of Warren.
