HUNTS POINT, the Bronx (PIX11) — Police asked for help from the public on Sunday, days after the remains of an infant were found at a Bronx sewage facility.
On Wednesday morning, a 40-year-old worker at the Ryawa Avenue facility found what appeared to be part of a leg, officials said. A Department of Environmental Protection spokesperson declined to comment on the find, referring PIX11 to the NYPD.
