Police: ‘Fetus or infant’ found in freezer, additional human remains uncovered at Boston apartment

BOSTON — According to law enforcement officials, more human remains were discovered in an apartment in Boston less than 24 hours after a “fetus or infant” was found in a freezer at the same address.

Detectives responded to the apartment in South Boston on Thursday after calls were made to investigate the premises, according to the Suffolk County District Attorney’s Office. Upon arrival, they located what appeared to be a human fetus or infant inside a freezer.

According to WFXT-TV, homicide detectives returned to the building on Friday and uncovered “what appeared to be additional human remains,” the Boston Police Department said.

The freezer in the apartment contained what appeared to be the remains of an infant, along with several other boxes, WFXT reported. One of the boxes contained the remains of a fetus. Other boxes at the scene were being examined.

The Office of the Chief Medical Examiner has taken possession of both sets of remains and is investigating along with the police and the district attorney’s office. No additional information was made public, according to The Associated Press.
