A district medical officer (DMO) visited the scene and ordered that a post-mortem be conducted today at the Forensic Science Centre, St James. The DMO estimated the age of the baby as being a little over a week. Police believe the baby’s body was dumped at a different location and was picked up by garbage collectors who disposed their garbage at the landfill. Several sanitation workers were also interviewed by detectives.
Homicide detectives are awaiting the findings of the autopsy to proceed with their investigation. ASP Ajith Persad, Inspectors Sahadeo Singh and Mervyn Edwards visited the scene and are investigating.
