Body Parts Found In Suburban Sewer

STERLING HEIGHTS, Mich. (September 26, 2013)--Body parts have been found in a sewer in the Detroit suburb of Sterling Heights for the third time in just more than a year, police say.

Sterling Heights police say the remains were found Wednesday by workers making repairs.

A statement from police says there's a strong possibility the parts are medical waste that was improperly put into the sewer.

The Detroit News reports three pieces each measure 2-by-2 inches.

The Macomb County medical examiner's office says DNA samples will be submitted for additional testing.

Officials say partial remains found in August 2012 in a sewer in Sterling Heights came from a woman, but not the same woman whose body parts were discovered in December 2012 in a sewer line in the nearby community of Warren.
