A dead fetus was found in a dumpster Saturday at a mall in west suburban Lombard.
An investigation has been launched into the deceased fetus found in the dumpster at Yorktown Mall, according to the DuPage County State's Attorney's office.
An autopsy was performed on the fetus but the DuPage Coroner's office nor the state's attorney's office would provide any further details.
Glendale Heights police, who is also handling the investigation, would not comment on the incident.
As the deadly epidemic spiraled out of control several weeks ago, a young specialist in infectious disease control working at the Illinois Department of Public Health volunteered to fly to the front line of the fight.
