HOUSTON, TX – A disturbing discovery at a southwest Houston apartment complex. It happened Thursday evening at the Azalea Place Apartments at 5900 Bissonnet.

Houston police say the apartment’s maintenance man got more than he bargained for when he went to repair a clogged toilet in one of the units. When he arrived, HPD says he found a fetus inside the toilet.

“I can’t believe it. It’s hard to hear that situation,” said Lucila Rivas, apartment resident.

“We don’t know what kind of neighbors we have nowadays,” Rivas added.

So was it a miscarriage or something sinister? Three adult females at the apartment were questioned by HPD homicide, but no charges have been filed. In the meantime, police await autopsy results.
