Baby’s Body in Fridge: Doctor Detained
Our Lady of Sorrows, pray for us.
Police say they found the dead baby of a 22-year-old woman in the refrigerator of a doctor’s office in San Fernando on Monday.
The doctor was taken in for questioning by homicide officers.
Police executed a search warrant at the office after the family of the woman claimed that she was administered medication to induce an abortion.
Police were told that the baby was born alive and taken to the doctor’s office where it was left.
The family later claimed the doctor told them he had taken the new-born to the San Fernando General Hospital for treatment.
However, there was no record of the baby being admitted to the hospital, which prompted Monday’s search of the office.
The doctor allegedly told police he had kept the body of the baby on the request of the parents.
