Newborn Girl Found Dead at Recycling Plant

Homicide detectives were investigating the discovery Thursday a dead female infant found wrapped in a blanket on a conveyor belt at a recycling facility in Victorville, officials said.

The discovery was made at 11:30 a.m. when authorities responded to the Victor Valley Material Recovery Facility in the 17000 block of Abbey Lane.

The baby was a newborn, the San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department said.

The baby was most likely dumped inside a residential or commercial recycle bin and then hauled to the plant.

The plant serves most of the high desert area except for Hesperia.

A man who answered the phone at the plant declined to comment.

Victorville is about 80 miles northeast of downtown Los Angeles.
