MOUNT LAUREL, N.J. – The search for the remains of a Jersey City baby apparently thrown in the trash by a hospital has moved to Kentucky.
But police fear the corpse has already been incinerated.
Police have been looking for the body of Bashere Davon Moyd Jr. since Jan. 2, when it was discovered missing from the morgue at Christ Hospital.
Authorities say the remains were apparently thrown away with the hospital's trash sometime between Dec. 21 and Jan. 2.
And Kentucky State Police say they're working with Jersey City authorities to secure railcars that may have transported the waste to a landfill in Kentucky.
The hospital said yesterday that it's working with police to find the remains and was changing morgue procedures "to prevent a similar tragedy from happening again."
