3 day old baby dies under suspect circumstances

A baby, no more than three days old, lost its life under questionable circumstances on April seventeenth. The infant, in an unconscious state, was rushed to the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital where he passed away. The mother, a sixteen year old minor reportedly denied knowing what happened after five thirty when she breast fed the baby. She claimed she left the room for less than a minute and returned to find the newborn on his side, eyes wide open, and his forehead turning blue. The child died an hour later at the K.H.M.H. A postmortem examination showed the cause of death as internal bleeding due to head trauma, bleeding from the liver and the stomach due to abdominal trauma.  News Five spoke to the Police Press Officer who says that the investigation is routine as is all deaths. The trauma, which could have been from a blow or a fall, will be further investigated. Since the mother is a minor, the name cannot be released to the public.

    I hope the person who impregnated this child will be brought to justice. A sixteen year old have not learned how to take care of herself let alone a new born baby. There is a problem with this statement, a three day old baby cannot turn on its side. I hope this is checked out thoroughly.

    Murder most foul. It would have to be a fall from a GREAT height to cause that sort of internal injury. A 3 day old infant did not climb up anything on its own!

    Al is right about arresting an locking up the father for carnal knowledge, and someone needs to be punished for slaughtering the baby.

    Let’s pray for the baby, and that police and DPP can do their jobs successfully.

    Huh? Maybe the parents (mother & father) of the 16 year old should be locked up as well. Seems like alot of people should take responsibility for the 16 year old evening having a child. Yet alone leaving the 3 day infant alone (which seems like she or someone intentionally killed the baby). IMO.
