Police probing death of baby found in trash bin

More by this author

Authorities are investigating the discovery of an infant’s body in a trash container on Indianapolis’ north side.

The Indianapolis Star and WTHR-TV say a couple scavenging for metal found the body early Monday afternoon under trash near the top of the bin behind a vacant warehouse.

Sgt. Matthew Mount, a spokesman for the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department, says investigators aren’t sure if the remains are those of a full-term baby or possibly a stillborn fetus. They also haven’t determined the infant’s sex or race.

The body was removed by the Marion County coroner’s office.

Mount says homicide detectives were on the scene, though all that is certain is that the body was improperly disposed of.
