Police are investigating after a human fetus was found near a school in Brooklyn on Monday morning.
Authorities say a person walking their dog at Bradford Street and Linden Boulevard in East New York around 7 a.m. discovered the fetus alongside a bag of bloody clothing.
“You could see the blood inside of the bag from the clothes,” Said Veronica Sexton, another witness who only saw the bag. “The clothes were drenched in blood. It was a horrific sight to see.”
The location is near P.S. 36; New York City schools are closed this week for midwinter recess.
The fetus appeared to be around 20 weeks, according to authorities.
The NYPD is investigating the discovery, and detectives could be seen going door to door to see if anyone had surveillance footage showing someone leaving the fetus.
The identity of the mother is also unknown.
Anyone with information should call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS.
