VICTORVILLE, Calif. — An autopsy was planned on a baby girl whose body was found on a conveyor belt by a worker sorting cans and plastics at a California recycling center.
The body was found in a blanket Thursday in Victorville, 85 miles north of Los Angeles.
Homicide detectives were investigating. Authorities said she appeared to be a newborn.
Sheriff’s spokeswoman Cindy Bachman said Friday there were few leads in the case.
“No one has come forward to identify the baby,” she said. “There are a lot of questions that can’t be answered.”
Last year, another newborn girl was found in a recycling yard in Los Angeles County.
