Foetus found at Forres Park landfill

Police are investigating the discovery of a foetus in the Forres Park landfill in Claxton Bay yesterday.

The blood-stained foetus, that of a male of 36 weeks, was wrapped in a towel and placed in a black plastic bag.

Police said scavengers discovered the bag and contacted the police around 2 p.m.

A party of officers attached to the Couva Police Station visited the scene.

The foetus was examined by a district medical officer last evening.

He ordered its removal to the San Fernando General Hospital mortuary.
