Amsterdam (dpa) – In the second grisly case of its kind in the
Netherlands in recent weeks, Dutch police said Thursday they have
discovered the corpses of three new-born babies.
A 41-year-old woman was regarded as a murder suspect, with tests
showing that she had given birth to at least one of the babies, which
were found in the back yard of a house in the town of Geleen, near
Investigations were under way to determine whether she was also
the mother of the other two infants. Police found the first corpse in
a shed last Friday and so searched the property, uncovering two
further dead babies.
In early August, police found the remains of four babies stashed
in suitcases in the attic of a house in the village of Nij Beets. A
25-year-old woman living there with her parents is suspected of
murder, although charges have not yet been formally filed.
