Authorities have recovered body parts from a suburban Detroit sewer for the third time in just over a year, The Associated Press reported.

Workers in the Sterling Heights area of Macomb County, Mich., made the initial discovery Wednesday.

Police says there’s a strong possibility the body parts are medical waste that was improperly disposed, the report said.

The Detroit News reported three pieces, each measuring 2-by-2 inches, will be submitted for testing.

Officials found a woman’s body parts in August 2012 in a sewer in Sterling Heights, and again from a different woman in December 2012 in a sewer line in the nearby community of Warren, AP reported.
