Newborn Found Drowned In The River

Toledo Police were called to San Vicente Village on Wednesday afternoon after the Acalde of the Village, Edgar Pinto reported to the Police that at around noon, a member of the village came to him saying that he found the dead body of a newborn floating in the river.

The Police Officers were led to a pasture located about ½ a mile off the main road where they found the newborn floating in the river about five meters from the river bank.

Investigation into the matter revealed that on Sunday Morning a 29-year-old member of San Vicente Village gave birth to the child and with the help of her 28-year-old common-law husband threw the child into the river.

It is unclear of the motives as to why the newborn was killed but Police have arrested both suspects and will be facing charges of Infanticide and Concealment of the Body of a Child if found guilty.
