Two Fetuses Found Along Roadway in Fallbrook

Fallbrook CA— On Friday, January 2, 2015, at about 1:41 p.m. a blanket was located along the side of the roadway in the 1700 block of Saint Peters Drive in Fallbrook.

When the person who discovered the blanket looked underneath, they discovered what appeared to be two full-term fetuses and called the fire department and the Sheriff’s Department for assistance.

When the fire department arrived they confirmed the fetuses were deceased. Deputies then requested detectives from the Homicide Detail to respond and handle the investigation.

Detectives noticed the fetuses were actually fully-developed and were at least twenty weeks old or older. Each fetus had its own umbilical cord, which were both still attached to one placenta.
A cause and manner of death will be determined by the Medical Examiner’s Office.

We are asking for the public’s assistance to help us identify the mother of the children. This would be someone who was recently pregnant and is no longer pregnant and does not have their babies to show after their birth.

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to call the Homicide Detail at (858) 974-2321 or after hours at (858) 565-5200. You can remain anonymous and be eligible for up to a $1,000 reward for information leading to an arrest. Call Crime Stoppers at (888) 580-8477
