    Autopsy Results on Baby Found at Trash Facility Inconclusive

    An investigation into the discovery of a dead baby boy at a Connecticut garbage and recycling processing facility has been complicated by inconclusive autopsy results.

    Workers at the Stamford plant found the newborn Tuesday as they were sorting recyclable material.

    Police Capt. Richard Conklin tells the Stamford Advocate the state medical examiner was unable to determine how the baby died. He says the medical examiner is conducting more tests to determine if the baby was stillborn or died after birth.

    Conklin says workers found the baby when a conveyer belt jammed and they began sorting through the recycling by hand to clear the jam.

    Some Leavenworth County, Kansas, officials are calling for Commissioner Louis Klemp's resignation after he insulted a black woman who had just presented a land-use study to the commission. "I don't want you to think I am picking on you because we are part of the master race. You have a gap in your teeth. We are part of the master race, don't you forget that," Klemp said.

    The material brought to the facility that day originated in Stamford and Greenwich, Connecticut; Somers and the Oyster Bay area of New York; and Andover, Massachusetts.
