Post-mortem on dumped baby inconclusive, police say

The facility at Pentakomo (CNA)

The results of a post-mortem on a newborn’s body found at a Limassol waste management unit on Friday came back inconclusive, according to a police statement released on Monday.

“No conclusions could be drawn by the examination, which was carried out by doctors Angeliki Papetta and Orthodoxos Orthodoxou,” said the statement.

“The condition in which the body was found unfortunately prevented the doctors from finding any more information.”

The infant was found around noon on Friday two by female employees at the Pentakomo facility who were sorting through the items on a conveyor belt. The baby boy had been placed in a bin bag.

CyBC reported that the placenta and umbilical cord were also in the bag. The station speculated that the bag had been thrown into a domestic rubbish bin and taken by garbage truck to the waste sorting facility.

In the next few days, an histopathological and a genetic examination will also be conducted on the newborn’s body, police confirmed.
