Police in Russia are investigating an abandoned pathology lab where mummified remains of babies have been discovered by shocked locals. Officers have launched a probe into the grisly discovery of body parts, including bones and human organs left scattered around the run-down facility in Tobolsk, western Siberia. Scars were visible on many of the bodies of the babies, showing where surgical procedures had been carried out, some as recently as three years ago, according to the Siberian Times. The horrifying and macabre discovery was made by medical student Georgy Grigorchuk from Tobolsk, who had been walking in a park frequented by children when he saw a building with an open door. Entering the facility, he saw jars containing remains, used slides from blood tests, and skulls lying on dusty shelves, it was reported. Plastic jars had dates written on the side, including January 2012. 'I learned about this place from other students of my medical college,' he said. 'I heard that in this laboratory were a lot of abandoned interesting things. 'Namely, some books lying around, organs in glass jars, all sorts of documents. It was very interesting for a medical student.' Read More: Daily Mail Online
