Workers at a recycling plant in Westchester County discovered a dead baby inside a plastic bag Tuesday, police say.
Investigators are now looking into how the baby was killed before it wound up at the Brookfield Recycling Plant in Elmsford.
The workers were sifting through piles of recyclable materials when they found the infant's body at about 3 p.m., Westchester police say. It was born full term.
An autopsy is scheduled for Wednesday.
"It's sad," said resident Mark Stead. "It's terrible for that to happen anywhere. It's unusual for Elmsford -- it's a town like any other."
Last month, a dead baby was found inside a Long Island trash facility. Police said the baby girl, who still had her umbilical cord attached, was not born alive.
