A fetus was found by a passerby in a parking lot in the town of Beit Shemesh on Sunday.



Local police arrived on the scene and spotted the fetus, which was still attached to the placenta, and questioned the passerby who notified authorities.



Forensics experts gathered up the fetus and brought it back to Abu Kabir Institute of Forensic Medicine for DNA testing in order to determine the identity of the mother.
