ST. PAUL, Minn. — A Minnesota hospital believes a second stillborn baby’s remains may have been sent to a laundry.

Regions Hospital of St. Paul said Friday that it thinks the second set were in the same basket of linens containing another stillbirth.

The hospital began investigating after a set of remains was found by a laundry service employee earlier this week. The hospital says the remains were wrapped in linens in the hospital morgue and somehow were mistaken for laundry that was supposed to be sent out for cleaning.

The hospital says its records indicates a second set of remains that were in the same location did not go to a funeral home.
