The 20-year-old mother of the baby was found dead in a clothing collection box in Osan-si, Gyeonggi-do, and was arrested by the police.
According to the Osan Police Station in Gyeonggi Province, Mr. A is suspected of running away from a baby boy at around 5:20 pm on the 18th at a clothing collection box on the roadside of Gwol-dong, Osan.
The baby was found the next day around 11:30 p.m. by a man who was trying to collect old clothes from the bin.
At the time of discovery, the baby was wrapped in a towel and died.
After analyzing the CCTV (closed circuit) TV near the clothing collection box, the police arrested the biological mother of A at her home in Osan-si on the 23rd.
Person A is reported to have stated at the police, “It was a baby born without my husband’s knowledge, so I threw it in the clothing collection box to hide it.”
The police have not yet confirmed whether the baby was alive when A left the baby in the clothing collection box, so first, they applied for an arrest warrant by applying only the corpse abandonment charge to A.
The Suwon District Court issued an arrest warrant today (26th) saying, “There is a risk of running away and destroying evidence” after interrogating the suspect before arresting Mr.
A police official said, “The autopsy was conducted to accurately determine the cause and timing of the baby’s death.
