Police discovered the skeletal remains of a suspected human fetus on Harbour Island on Wednesday, police reported over the weekend.
While details were limited, officers were called to Munnings Street where they made the discovery, police said.
The remains have been transported to New Providence.
Assistant Commissioner of Police Anthony Ferguson said a forensic laboratory report would guide the investigation and help determine what possible charges if any police should seek.
No arrest has been made in relation to the find, he said.
Last month, police questioned the mother of a fetus found underneath a vehicle in the southern parking lot at Rand Memorial Hospital in Freeport.
It is unclear whether she gave birth on-site or near the hospital or how long the fetus was there.
No further police action has been taken against the mother, who is said to be in her early teens.
Her identity has been withheld.
“We are waiting for the lab results to get back to us, and they haven’t gotten back to us as yet,” Assistant Commissioner Emrick Seymour said yesterday.
“That will determine how we proceed. The lab results will identify the cause of death among other things.”
