Police: Newborn Boy's Body Found at Connecticut Garbage Facility

Police are investigating after a newborn baby boy's body was found on a conveyer belt at a garbage facility in Connecticut Tuesday morning.

The full-term baby was found at City Carting on Taylor Reed Place in Stamford just after 8:30 a.m., according to police. 

It's not clear how the infant died or how he ended up at the facility. Medical examiners are trying to determine a cause of death. 

No arrests have been made. 

NBC 4 New York has emailed City Carting seeking comment. The commercial facility receives recyclables not just from Connecticut but from surrounding states as well, including Massachussets and New York.

A nearby deli owner said the worker who found the baby was distraught when he stopped in. 

"He was upset. He saw it on the conveyor belt, it was stuck and he went there to try and loosen it and do whatever, and found it," said Rocco Dipreta.
