A couple arrested for the death of a baby found in a garbage container

The discovery of the baby occurred on the afternoon of December 15 in Lavalle at 1600 and the 54th National Criminal and Correctional Prosecutor’s Office, in charge of Laura Belloqui, entrusted the Summary Division and Prevention Brigades of the Communal Police Station 1 of the City Police, a series of inquiries in search of witnesses and images of moments before and after the discovery of the body.

Police sources informed Telam that from the analysis of the elements collected, the researchers focused on a woman who would have thrown the bag with the body inside the container.

That person was robust, with long hair and was dressed in an embroidered T-shirt with light inscriptions on his forehead, dark pants and Crocs type mules.

The investigation made it possible to locate the address where the suspect entered, a building on Tucumán Street at 1700, two blocks away from the place where the body was found. The troops finally managed to identify her, as well as her partner, both foreigners, the sources added.

With the identity of the suspects in her possession, prosecutor Belloqui requested the search of the apartment where the couple lives and the arrest of both of the 54th National Criminal and Correctional Court, in charge of Judge Érica María Uhrlandt, who made room for the order.

The magistrate also required to collect items, such as clothing or a toothbrush, from which a biological profile could be extracted and to obtain traces that could indicate whether the woman was recently pregnant.

The procedure was carried out by personnel from the Comuna 1 Brigade, with the support of members of the Foreign Video and Criminalistics Division of the City Police, during which the two suspects were detained and garments were seized, including those that the woman would have used when going to the container, as well as items requested to carry out the investigation.

The discovery was registered around 2:30 p.m. on Tuesday, December 15, when personnel from the Neighborhood Police Station 1 B went to Lavalle at 1600, three blocks from the Palace of Courts.

The officers were alerted after a man looking for cardboard and materials to sell inside a container saw a baby without vital signs inside a bag.

Immediately, after arriving at the scene, the police called the Emergency Medical Attention System (SAME), which confirmed the death of the child.
