"The Death of a child is Incomprehensible the brutal death of a newborn baby girl is inconceivable."

Joint Task Force ALPHA-20 has been established to investigate the brutal murder of a baby girl aged between 2 weeks to 1 month old in Kandal Province.

On the 31st of January at about 5.30pm, the discarded body of an approximately 2-week old baby girl (Jane F) was located outside a school in Prek Thmak Villiage Kandal Province. Kandal Police conducted initial investigations then contacted the CPU.

On the morning of the 4th of February members of the CPU Homicide Investigations Team, Forensic Investigation Team, Kandal Police Command and Ministry of Interior conducted a forensic examination on the baby girl.

Investigations revealed the baby had suffered horrific injuries which would have resulted in her death prior to being located dumped on the side of the road.

Kandal Police Command and CPU are appealing for residents in the surrounding communes and villages who suspect a child to be missing, that may have been born in the last month to contact Kandal Police or the CPU. Any information provided will be treated confidentially.

When baby Jane F. was located she was wrapped in a towel and a pair of men's shorts (photograph below). Investigators have seized several items from the scene and DNA samples from baby Jane F.

"Any homicide of a child is heartbreaking for investigators but to see the level of violence used against an innocent newborn is impossible to comprehend" James McCabe Director Operations CPU

RIP angel you deserved so much better.

That is disgusting. I could not magine someone being able to do that to anyone, especially a baby. I hope they find the person and their life is very short afterward.
Still hunting for opium paraphernalia.

Not sure what the case here is but murders of newborns are often carried out by very desperate mothers who may be suffering from serious depression and mental conditions.

A child got dumped and killed in a condom? 300 million potential children get dumped and killed with every used condom. Is that what your referring to?

Preventing conception is NOT murder.

Abortion is MURDER!!!

It's just done in a doctor's office where outsiders can't see the results.

Ever seen an abortion survivor? Missing body parts from a botched abortion.

My point is, how curious it is that so many are OUTRAGED by this poor baby's demise, as they should be, but are perfectly at peace with violence as long as it takes place in the womb where they don't have to see it.

This is what I was thinking as I was reading it. Although I'm not sure how common it is for a mother to murder her child by sustaining horrific injuries to it - whatever they may be. It's usually suffocation or some other quick, relatively painless method. The story sounds as if something a lot more sadistic went on. Still doesn't rule it out though.
