Authorities are still seeking the public's help with information about discovery of the remains of two fetuses in eastern South Dakota.
The decomposed tissue and bones were found Nov. 2 in a rural shelterbelt on private land near Astoria, and state and local officials are investigating the case as a homicide.
Deuel County Sheriff Dave Solem tells the Associated Press that he has no new information to share but investigators would still like to speak to anyone with information related to the discovery.
Experts have concluded that the fetuses were about 40 weeks old and capable of living outside the uterus. The sheriff's office and the state Division of Criminal Investigation have been gathering additional information from an autopsy report and a forensic anthropological evaluation.
