Remains Found In Pittsburgh Woman's Freezer Were Those Of Her Fetus Autopsy Shows

Updated:
PITTSBURGH (AP) -- Remains found in a woman's freezer were those of her miscarried 20-week old fetus, an autopsy revealed Friday.

Christine Hutchinson, 22, of Pittsburgh, remained jailed unable to post $500,000 bond on a charge of abuse of a corpse. It was not immediately clear if she had an attorney.

Medical examiner Dr. Karl E. Williams said his preliminary finding is that the death occurred naturally.

Williams' office and the Pittsburgh police were still investigating.

Police were alerted to the remains by a caller from Texas, who knows someone acquainted with Hutchinson, police said.

According to a police affidavit, Hutchinson told police she miscarried April 22 and did not call medics or police. The affidavit does not say whether Hutchinson told police why she did not call for medical help or why she might have put the remains in the freezer.
