Autopsy inconclusive for fetus found in bag at Victoria's Secret

Posted: Updated:

NEW YORK (AP) -- Medical examiners say an autopsy of a fetus found in a teenage girl's shopping bag at a New York City lingerie store is inconclusive, and more tests will be needed to determine how the fetus died.

The inconclusive results came Friday, and the medical examiners' office says the needed tests could take a couple of weeks.

Chief police spokesman John McCarthy says investigators are awaiting the medical examiners' findings. Those would show how the fetus died, including whether it was born alive and whether it was asphyxiated.

The remains were discovered Thursday when a security guard stopped two 17-year-old girls at a Victoria's Secret store.

The girls were arrested on petit larceny charges. It's unclear whether they have lawyers.

    To say the 6 feet 5 inch Baloji has a presence would be an understatement. The Belgian artist commands the stage with his mix of hip hop, funk, and rap. The 34-year-old rocked out Webster Hall back in January. Now he's back in New York City kicking off a month-long tour. "It's one of the most inspiring cities on Earth so it's always great to be here," Baloji says.

    New York has never known a Central Park without that rhythmic click-clacking. But if Mayor Bill de Blasio gets his way, he'll put those hooves out to pasture, replacing them with a different noise-maker. Actually, excluding its horn the electric carriage makes little noise at all. It runs on lithium-ion batteries, has a variable-speed a/c motor, and is relatively silent, says Jason Wenig.
