Baby remains discovered at Oshikuku

The Omusati police are investigating a case of murder and concealment of birth after the remains of a newborn baby were discovered in a plastic bag at an unserviced plot in Oshikuku on Monday.

The Namibian Police Force’s Omusati Crime Investigations Coordinator, Deputy Commissioner Moses Simaho, on Tuesday said the discovery was made around 16h30 by community members who saw pigs eating something from the plastic bag, which led them to investigate.

‘They then discovered that the plastic bag contained human remains that appeared to be the bones of a baby scattered around, as well as bloodstained baby clothes, and informed the police,’ he said.

Simaho said the remains of the baby were transported to the Okahao Police Station mortuary. Police investigations continue.
