The dead body of eight month pregnant Darlene Haynes was found wrapped in a comforter Monday in the closet of her apartment. Police are searching for the fetus they say was cut from her womb.
"The fetus was not recovered at the scene and detectives are searching for this fetus, which, according to medical personnel, could survive but will need medical attention immediately," police said in a statement.
No arrests have been made.
Police said they talked to Haynes' boyfriend, Roberto Rodriguez, the father of Haynes' 2-year-old daughter.
Court records show Haynes had a restraining order against Rodriguez, as the result of an alleged assault in June.
