    PA - Bodies of two newborns found in vacant lot, Philadelphia 11-5-2015

    The bodies of two babies were found in a weeded lot in North Philadelphia and police are investigating. The babies were pronounced dead at the lot by medics at 10:31 a.m., police said. Investigators said both of the infants had cuts on them while one had the umbilical cord still attached.
    Just thrown out like trash. LE has no clue how long they've been there.

    I'm so confused by what this means. Autopsies had already been done on them previous to being 'found' and the bodies where stolen from the morgue perhaps??? This is going to be a strange one.

    The examiner also said that autopsies were previously performed on them at an unknown time by unknown medical personnel.

    Woah. Sounds like it. Some hospital or funeral home has just dumped them there rather than burying or incinerating them? We're they full-term, I wonder. And were they twins, or two unrelated babies.

    Video interview of the 9yr that found the bodies plus more (very little) info on the "previous" autopsies.

    Could it be a situation where a crematorium was having problems with the furnace and decided to dump some of the bodies? It's happened before...

    Those poor babies. That's disgusting, regardless of whether they were already dead or not. Very weird. So sad.

    This is disturbing. There are so many possible scenarios. I see that recently in the same area, a mortuary was disposing of bodies in dumpsters or something. So I am leaning toward something like that. Sad.

    Police say they don't suspect foul play in how the babies died. But they and everyone who lives in the neighborhood are horrified by how they were just dumped like trash in the alley.
    This is at least the third incident involving the abuse of corpses in Philadelphia since the summer.

    The corpses had been donated for research and/or training and were then improperly disposed of, the medical examiner said. They may have been stillborn or died in womb.

    What and someone thought it would be a good idea to just toss them out like pieces of garbage?

    Imagine losing your baby and making the heartbreaking decision to donate their bodies so they can help researchers prevent stillbirths or neonatal death... And then you find out that their little bodies had just been dumped liked this
