Police are on alert after a report that a newborn baby may have been tossed in the trash. A search by the authorities is currently underway for the child.
There is evidence that a mother had a stillborn child and then tossed the baby in the trash.
Trauma after a still-born child is common, but it is still not legal to just throw away the dead child’s body in the garbage.
Police have searched all over, carefully filtering through nearby trash, incinerators and a nearby school.
NYPD dogs picked up on an unusual scent in the bathroom of the school that aroused the officers suspicious.
The officers responded to a call by a concerned family member and they went to Sackman Street in Brownsville, NY.
