Update: 3 day old baby found in garbage bag…

crime-tapePolice have taken a 21 year old woman into custody, after the decomposing body of a three day old baby was discovered in a river near Sangre Chiquito.

According to reports, the gruesome discovery was made about 6 o clock Saturday morning, in the vicinity of the woman’s home, off John Humphrey Drive. 

The woman and her 25 year old partner reportedly visited the Manzanilla Police Post on Saturday and reported that the baby had died.

Police say the woman who had given birth on Thursday last at the Sangre Grande District Hospital, said on Friday at around 5 p.m. she fed the baby and placed him on a couch to sleep.

She said when she returned a short while after taking a bath, she found the baby frothing from his mouth.

The woman told investigators she panicked and put the infant in a garbage bag and placed him at the side of the road.

The baby’s body was taken to the Forensic Science Centre in St James where an autopsy is expected to be done today…
