EAST HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — Police in Connecticut say they’re investigating the death of a baby found in a trash can.
East Hartford officers found the baby’s body in a trash bin outside a home Tuesday night. Police say they went to the house after a doctor called them to report that an 18-year-old woman who was evaluated at Connecticut Children’s Medical Center showed signs of having given birth.
Police haven’t released other details, including whether anyone was arrested and how old the baby was.
The baby’s body was taken to the Chief Medical Examiner’s Office in Farmington for an autopsy.
