Baby's remains found at Yaphank waste station
Police are trying to identify the remains of an infant that were found at a waste transfer station in Yaphank.
Cops say an employee at the Winters Yaphank Transfer Station on Old Dock Road found the frozen remains Monday morning inside a compacted bundle of trash.
"The refuse at the facility is cut into cubes," says Detective Lt. Jack Fitzpatrick, of the Suffolk County Police Department. "The child was partially protruding from one of the cubes."
Investigators say they do not yet know the baby's sex and age, or if it was born alive.
Anyone with information on the case is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-220-TIPS.
