1 Month Later, No Movement in Dead Baby Find

No one has been charged for the discarding of a baby boy in the east canal of Belize City. The discovery of a dead baby with its umbilical cord still attached occurred on July twentieth; it was inside a black plastic bag and was fished out of the waterway by a sanitation worker who was cleaning the area.  While the identity of the mother has still not been revealed, police say that it is believed that she was among several persons detained in the aftermath of the discovery. Today, Vidal gave the media an update on the investigation.

Sr. Supt. Marco Vidal, Regional Commander, Eastern Division South

“There are a bit of challenges with that investigation. As you know, it is not a simple get statements and move forward; there are other things with it. As you know, there were certain items recovered from a house so we are awaiting a response in that regard. And there are other things that need to be done for us to move forward. There have been persons of interests detained but they have to be released; we can’t hold them forever. So as the investigation continues, we can bring back those people and then once they are brought back and we have enough, then those people will be charged.”



“Among those people was anybody the suspected mother?”


Sr. Supt. Marco Vidal

“We believe that the possible mother is one of them.”
