RED WING, Minn. (AP) — Police say a baby's body was discovered by a laundry service employee washing linens for a Twin Cities hospital.

Red Wing Police Chief Roger Pohlman says the body tumbled out of a bed sheet at Crothall Laundry Tuesday. Pohlman said Wednesday laundry employees called the hospital that owns the linens and someone from the hospital traveled to Red Wing to retrieve the body.

The chief says his investigators did not see the body but interviewed laundry employees. Pohlman says he doesn't know the gender, age or identity of the baby.

Authorities would not name the hospital, but Pohlman says his officers are working with St. Paul police on the case, classified as a death investigation.

The linens had been delivered to the laundry service within 48 hours.
