DETROIT (AP) -- Investigators in Detroit say they have little to go on in the case of a fetus found in a municipal wastewater treatment plant.
The fetus estimated at 3 to 4 months of development was found Friday in the sewer system intake of the Detroit Water and Sewerage Department facility.
The plant takes in wastewater from Detroit plus 76 other communities in the surrounding region.
Tate said investigators are not even sure if a crime occurred. He said the fetus could have come through a toilet as a result of a miscarriage.

(This version CORRECTS that 76 communities are not all in Wayne County.)
