baby in dump was full term murder victim

On Tuesday’s newscast, we reported on the discovery of a human foetus in the Cayo garbage dump. Today, following a post-mortem examination, we are informed that the body is in fact that of a full-term baby boy who was killed after birth. According to police, the cause of death was strangulation and the age of the child is estimated to be one and a half weeks. The body was discovered on Tuesday afternoon by an attendant at the dump just off the Western Highway between San Ignacio and Benque Viejo. The case is now classified as murder and authorities are focussing their investigation on the communities in the Cayo District that are served by the disposal site.
