CONWAY, NH  – Conway authorities are working with the state Attorney General’s office to determine how “deceased human remains” ended up at the Conway Water Treatment plant, and are attempting to locate the mother.

According to Associate Attorney General Jeffery Strelzin in a news release, “the remains cannot be immediately classified as a fetus or a child in accordance with RSA 630:1-a,V(b)(1),” a statute pertaining to capital murder.

Kate Spiner, spokeswoman for the AG’s office, declined to elaborate on the remains further, pending autopsy results and further investigation.

Conway police were notified on Feb. 5 of “fully intact human remains” at the Conway Wastewater Treatment plant, including how the remains got there. The AG’s office said the most likely explanation is that the body was transported through the sewer system.

An autopsy is scheduled for Feb. 6.

Authorities are attempting to locate the mother to ensure her safety and well-being and determine the circumstances that led to the discovery.  Anyone with information about the incident is asked to contact the Conway Police Department at (603) 356-5715.

NH State Police are assisting with the investigation.
