Organs Found at Detroit Water Treatment Plant Could be Human
Police were called twice to a water treatment plant in Detroit after staffers found possibly human organs in an area that filters debris from the waste water. The organs will now undergo weeks of testing.
The first call to police came Friday when staffers found a possible organ at the Great Lakes Water Authority’s Water Resource Recovery Facility, according to the Detroit News.
A similar object was found on Saturday, according to Detroit Police Department
“The organ has not been identified, it will take months to ID an organ,” a spokesperson told WJBK.
The spokeswoman for Great Lakes Water Authority said they don’t know where the object entered the wastewater system. It was discovered in an area ahead of the treatment process, where debris is filtered out from wastewater.
“This does not affect the water treatment process,” Michelle A. Zdrodowski, a spokeswoman for the water authority, told Detroit News.
Fox News reports that a third organ was found on Wednesday.
For the third time in a week, an object that appears to be a body organ has been found at the Water Resource Recovery Facility.
The organ was found just before 7 p.m. Wednesday in the waste water at the facility. At this time, it’s not clear if the organ is from an animal or a human.
Two other organs, thought to be kidneys, were found at the plant. One was found last Friday and the other last Saturday.
