Was Baby S Murdered? The newborn girl suffered serious head injuries before dying and being thrown in the bin, police say

A newborn girl found dead at a recycling yard after being thrown in a rubbish bin suffered a serious head injury before dying, police said.

Baby S was also born alive, but it’s not known if she was alive when she was released, officials added.

They also said it was impossible to determine whether a single cause or multiple causes led to her death in May 2020 in Ipswich, Suffolk.

And her parents are still unknown to officials two years later.

Baby S, who was of black or mixed ethnicity background, was found dead during the first lockdown by staff sorting rubbish at Sackers’ recycling depot.

When asked if the case could be a homicide, officers said, “We remain open-minded to the circumstances of Baby S’s death.”

Police believe she was thrown into a rubbish bin at one of 52 business sites in the Ipswich area where rubbish was being collected earlier in the day and taken to the center by two Sackers trucks.

A post-mortem by a Home Office pathologist could not determine her cause of death but said she was less than 48 hours old when she died.

Police today admitted investigations were hampered by injuries Baby S sustained after her death, which resulted from waste processing

A statement from Suffolk Police today said: “Officials can confirm that Baby S was brought to term, however it is not possible to say if there was a single cause or a combination of causes of death.

“However, she sustained a head injury before her death.

“A comprehensive search was carried out at the recycling center, during which some items were taken away.

“Unfortunately, forensic analysis of the items did not provide any further answers in the search for the little girl’s parents.

“Baby S was found during the first lockdown in the country, at a time when her mother may have been in contact with fewer people than normal, but her pregnancy and birth may have been obvious and we need people with information to share this with the police.”

Detective Chief Inspector Karl Nightingale added: “We remain hopeful and determined to identify Baby S’s family.”

Baby S was buried in a tiny white coffin in February at a simple funeral service attended by 15 mourners, including police officers, council officials and six Sackers employees.

Celebrant Patrick Eade likened her to a rosebud that doesn’t bloom, adding: “Baby S, you will never be forgotten.

“May the light of love shine upon you and those who care for you, and may you reach the end of your journey in gentleness and joy.

“Your memory will live on in our hearts and as long as we remember you, you will live on.

“With love and respect we bid you rest. Go your way in peace.”
