Police are investigating a report that a dead baby girl was found under a tree in the yard of a family at El Socorro Extension Road, on Saturday morning.
According to reports, the family made the gruesome discovery around 8 am when a member went into the yard and saw the naked baby on the ground.
A check was made and it was discovered that the baby was dead. The Barataria Police were contacted and they took more than an hour to respond to the report.
Homicide Bureau officers and members of the CSI Unit also responded and assisted in removing the baby’s body to the Port-of-Spain General Hospital mortuary.
Police have not revealed how the baby died, but they are now looking into the possibility that the baby’s mother placed the body there, or the body was flung from a passing car during the night.
