Lake Erie Remains Identified as Human

The remains found Thursday afternoon along the Lake Erie shoreline in Chautauqua County have been determined to be a human fetus.

The Erie County Medical Examiner’s Office says the fetus was found intact and had a gestational age of 18 to 20 weeks, and appears to have been separated from the mother for two to three weeks. The cause of death has been listed as Intrauterine Fetal Demise.

State police and the Chautauqua County District Attorney’s Office are continuing the investigation to find the mother and to determine the circumstances surrounding the death of the fetus.
