The East Baton Rouge coroner has released information regarding the fetus found in a sewer over the weekend in Baton Rouge. 
According to WBRZ, the coroner's autopsy revealed that the fetus found in the sewer was a male and about 20 weeks old. Based on observation of the lungs, the fetus was determined to be stillborn as no breath was taken.

The Advocate reports that authorities said the findings from the autopsy means they will not pursue criminal charges. 

The fetus was found in a sewer Saturday afternoon at around 2:40 p.m. Crews were on site cleaning out the area in the 15000 block of Shenandoah View Court. 

The workers say they don't know how long the fetus has been there, but they worked on the site about two weeks ago before being taken off the job due to the freezing temperatures. 

According to the report, the fetus was not wrapped in anything.
