Fetuses found in a Lexington cemetery

From WCPO:

LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - The Fayette County Coroner's office says a second set of remains found at a Lexington cemetery are those of another fetus.

A statement from Fayette County Coroner Gary Ginn says the remains found Monday were from a female fetus thought to be 20 to 23 weeks old.

Police say the location of the fetus was 10 to 15 feet from the body of a 22-week-old fetus found last week.

The coroner's office says DNA testing will be done to see if there is a relationship between the two fetuses.


The latest discovery came at about 10 a.m. Monday near the Hillcrest Cemetery on Versailles Road, just few feet from where the first was found last Thursday by a woman walking her dog.

An autopsy Tuesday showed that the second fetus was female and was thought to be in the range of 20-23 weeks gestation. An autopsy showed the first fetus was about 22 weeks.
