A local pedestrian had a grisly find today when she discovered a deceased baby in a garbage bin near a Phuket-based University.
The Kusoldharm Rescue Team and police were called to the location at a soi in front of Dusitburi Village.
Police report the baby was approximately seven months old, female, with pale skin, and black hair. She was found in a black bag bound with two towels. Also in the bag was a T-shirt and articles of garbage.
Police spoke to the pedestrian who found the body. She is reported as saying she was searching the trash for plastic bottles at the time. She says she saw the big black bag, opened it and there was a body inside.
Police suspect the infant might have been from an unplanned pregnancy or from a mother who had problems keeping the baby.
The body was taken to Vachira Hospital for further examination. – The Nation
