NEW YORK, April 26, 2013 ( – Police are investigating after the body of an unborn child was found in a jar in a trash bag on a street in Queens, New York, according to local news reports.


The bag also reportedly contained part of a human skull and some dollar bills.

“It was a small fetus in a jar,” said one man, who declined to give his name, according to the New York Daily News. “And there was a full-grown skull next to the jar…This is the craziest thing I’ve ever seen.”

A woman reportedly found the bag in front of her house on Wednesday morning. She said she kicked the bag, and then reached in and found the jar. That’s when she phoned the police.

The Daily News reported that the objects inside the bag “appeared to be the result of a bizarre religious ceremony.”

This isn’t the first time that an unwary bystander has stumbled upon such a grisly discovery.

In February 2012, a man who was renovating an old home found two dusty jars containing the bodies of unborn babies. It turns out the building had been used as a covert abortion clinic some sixty years previous.

The man said his parents had found similar jars previously, but hadn’t told him about them. 

One point of contention in the ongoing Gosnell case has been his decision to keep the severed feet of babies he aborted in jars. Gosnell’s defense has been unable to explain the basis for this medically unnecessary practice. He also kept the bodies of many of his victims frozen in bags in freezers in the clinic.
