Newborn’s body dumped in Alcoy rubbish bin

ALCOY has been shocked by the news that a young mother allegedly stabbed her newborn child and put  its body in a bin.

However, it has not yet been confirmed whether the stab wounds were inflicted before or after the baby’s death.

The 18-year-old woman, Vanessa Q from Cali in Colombia, gave birth to the baby at her home last week and then went alone to hospital for treatment.

Nursing staff were concerned for the welfare of the child and called 091. They asked repeatedly where the child was before the mother eventually broke down and allegedly revealed the horrific truth.

The bin where the child’s body was placed was just 50 metres from the National Police station in the Peru district of Alcoy.

Police officers attended the scene where they discovered the newborn’s body in a bin. The infant had been stabbed twice and placed in plastic bags.

While investigating the scene and removing material evidence, the father of the young mother arrived.

Police detained him for questioning although he has since been released without  charge.

While the father of the young woman was at the police station, her boyfriend, Victor N, arrived.

He was informed about what had happened. He confirmed that he knew the girl was pregnant, but that the child was not his as they had only been in a relationship for three months.

He collapsed at the scene and had to be comforted by friends.

The young woman has been remanded in custody.
