Infant's body found in Minnesota hospital's linens

Police in southeastern Minnesota are investigating after an infant's body was discovered in linens from a St. Paul hospital.

The Minneapolis Star-Tribune is reporting early Wednesday that the body of a full-term infant fell out of a bed sheet Tuesday afternoon at an industrial laundry in the town of Red Wing.

Red Wing Police Chief Roger Pohlman says hospital workers had removed the body and linens from Crothall Laundry before his officers arrived. He declined to name the hospital but said his office is in contact with St. Paul police and the Ramsey County medical examiner.

Pohlman says the linens had been delivered to Crothall no longer than two days ago.
