Worker made discovery while sorting items on a conveyor belt
San Antonio, TX — The Houston Chronicle is reporting; the body of a dead infant was found in a blue duffel bag Monday afternoon by a recycling center employee sorting items on a conveyor belt.
Officials did not say whether the infant was a boy or girl, but police Sgt. Daniel Gonzales said the infant was believed to be between 1 and 10 days old. If an autopsy shows that the child was killed prior to the body being discarded, the case could become a capital murder investigation.
