The baby’s body that ended up in a linen bin at Red Wing’s Crothall Laundry came from the Regions Hospital morgue, officials said Wednesday.


The stillborn, premature boy had died April 4. The body had been wrapped in linen in the morgue, according to the hospital, and someone mistakenly thought it was laundry.

“We are really sorry and saddened that this event happened,” said Chris Boese, vice president of patient care of the hospital in St. Paul.
