In Barbados: Body of newborn found in drawer

(Barbados Nation) Police are investigating the discovery of a newborn’s decomposed body  in a St James home on Boxing Day.

Reports indicate that the baby was delivered of a young woman, who not too long ago had also given birth to a baby girl and abandoned her.

Public relations officer Inspector David Welch yesterday confirmed  that the police were probing the death  of a newborn girl, and said investigations were at “a sensitive stage”. The mother, Welch added, was not in custody and a post-mortem was being done  to determine the cause of death  of the infant.

A source close to the investigation told the MIDWEEK NATION yesterday that the tiny body was discovered wrapped in a sheet in a chest of drawers.
