LOS ANGELES – Authorities near Los Angeles have asked for the public help in determining how five cardboard boxes containing aborted unborn children wound up in a dirt lot near two freeways.

Investigators said it was possible the aborted children were being transported by a local abortion clinic and that the boxes “accidentally” landed in the vacant lot.

Two boys playing in the lot discovered a box containing six human fetuses March 14. searchers later found four additional boxes.
