    A third set of human remains was found at a Southern California water treatment plant. Police believe a woman's body was dumped in a sewer or manhole somewhere in Los Angeles. Angie Crouch reports from Carson for the NBC4 News at 5 p.m. Oct. 31, 2013.

    In the third such case in six days, authorities were investigating human remains found at a waste water treatment plant in Carson.

    Details about the discovery on Thursday were sketchy, but the Los Angeles County Coroner's Office said it was investigating body parts found at a plant Thursday morning at the Los Angeles County Joint Water Pollution Control Plant in the 24000 block of South Figueroa Street.

    [LA] Human Remains in Industry Linked to Carson
    Investigators say there is a link between the human remains found Monday in Industry and remains found over the weekend in Carson. A female human torso was discovered at a sewage plant about 20 miles east of downtown Los Angeles. Kathy Vara reports from The Industry for the NBC4 News at 5 p.m. Oct. 28, 2013.

    It was the second such find at this plant and the third in six days.

    On Saturday at the Carson plant, officials uncovered remains of a human leg and foot at the pollution control plant. Detectives believe Thursday's discovery is related to Saturday's find at the plant.

    On Monday, a worker at a wastewater plant near the city of Industry found a human torso and head while checking a clogged line, officials said.

    Homicide detectives and coroner's officials were investigating the connection among all three cases.
