Male Fetus Found at Wastewater Treatment Plant Determined to be a Non-viable

FOUNTAIN VALLEY, Calif. – The shocking discovery of a fetus at the Hill Canyon Wastewater Treatment Plant led to an investigation into the cause of death for the tiny baby.

On Saturday, April 6, 2019, at around 8:00 a.m., deputies from Moorpark and Thousand Oaks responded to the report of a fetus found in a metal storage bin. The Ventura County coroner responded to the scene to assist in the investigation. The investigation determined that the fetus came from an unknown location in the northern area of Thousand Oaks. Due to the sorting process at the facility, the fetus was separated with the solid materials in a metal storage bin. An employee noticed the fetus inside the bin and reported his findings.

On April 8, 2019, the fetus was determined to be a non-viable premature male fetus, which was unable to survive on its own outside of the womb. These results changed the course of the investigation since there is no crime believed to be committed. Authorities are concerned for the mother’s wellbeing.The Sheriff’s Office is asking that any member of the public with information about this incident contact Detective Ryan Poynter at (805) 384-4741 or by email at
