Baby found dead in London, Ont., dumpster

News staff and The Canadian Press | posted Friday, Jun 17th, 2016

Police are investigating after a baby’s body was found in a dumpster in London, Ont.

Investigators were called to Richmond and Mill streets around 11:35 a.m. on Thursday after they received a 911 call from a member of the public.

Const. Sandasha Bough could not say if the infant was a newborn nor could she say if it was a boy or a girl.

“That information is part of the investigation, we are not releasing it at this time,” said Bough. “When we do have it, we will be providing it to the public.”

Police add more details will be forthcoming once the results of the coroner’s examination is completed.

Area store owners say they hadn’t seen anything unusual and that it isn’t a high crime area.

Staff Sergeant Blair Harvey says the area has a lot of pedestrian and vehicle traffic.
