Foetus in plastic bag found on road, Avoca

A LOCAL resident got the shock of her life on Monday when she stumbled on a foetus.  According to Constable Zenzele Chonco, the foetus was discovered in a black plastic bag on Courtown Crescent, Avoca Hills. She told police she was walking home from the shop when she spotted the packet and inspected its contents.
