CCTV footage reveals man left box with babies in dump

A review of CCTV footage from the Forres Park Landfill in Claxton Bay has revealed that the bodies of two babies had been left there by a man.

The bodies of the two babies, said to be a boy and girl, were found on Wednesday morning in a cardboard box at the landfill. 

Investigators reviewing CCTV footage on that day saw that early in the morning a vehicle driven by a man had been seen entering the landfill.

The man was then seen removing a cardboard box from the vehicle and taking it further inside the dump.

Armed with this, as well as information received from the members of the public, police are said to be drawing closer to identifying the parents of the two children.

An autopsy performed on Wednesday by pathologist Dr Hughvon Des Vignes was not able to determine the cause of death for either child. 

However, it was determined that the children were stillborn.
