Human remains have been discovered in two separate water sewage plants in Los Angeles County, California.

Police say they believe the discovery is related to remains found Saturday in another water treatment plant in Carson. Employees there reportedly found two legs, a foot, and a pelvis. (Via WBNS)
The two sets of remains most likely flowed into the plants through the Los Angeles County Sanitation District’s sewer system.

A medical examiner is expected to confirm if the remains belonged to the same body and determine the cause of death.
