LANCASTER — A dead 7-month-old fetus was found at a local high school, a central Pennsylvania coroner said.

The discovery was made Tuesday night at McCaskey East High School, Lancaster County Coroner Steve Diamantoni said.

Diamantoni said he was called to the school about 10 p.m. Tuesday. He said he couldn't disclose exactly where the fetus was found.

An autopsy was done Wednesday, but the coroner said the cause and manner of death are pending, the (Lancaster) Intelligencer Journal/Lancaster New Era said.

A School District of Lancaster spokeswoman did not immediately return a call seeking comment.
