Infant's body discovered in ceiling of building in Gunma

22 Comments

What is presumed to be the skeleton of a baby has been discovered inside a bag, hidden inside the ceiling of a rental building in Takasaki City, police said Saturday.

The bones were found on Friday at around 10:30 a.m. by the employee of a renovation company that had been working on a room in the four-story building. The man called police after he found the bag stuffed inside a bigger plastic bag in the ceiling of a bathroom.

According to police, the bag contained the bones of what they believe was a child, along with baby clothes. They suspect at least half a year has passed since the child died, but the cause of death is still unclear.

The apartment in which the body was found has been vacant for a long period of time, and authorities are currently searching for the previous tenants.

If, by "authorities", you mean "Japanese Police", I shouldn't imagine the culprits will be losing any sleep.

What a calculated crime. Mother of this baby must be very sick and it is time that police nab her before she get pregnant again. Do many women have babies just for fun? I wonder how many more babies like this one are hiden in Japan? 'CAN YOU IMAGINE HOW MANY WOMEN WILL HAVE TO TESTED WITH DNA TO FIND THE REAL MOM. But where to start???

I imagine they just accidentally get pregnant and are too scared/ashamed to get an abortion or put it up for adoption. I doubt it's a "calculated" crime, they probably panic when it actually is born. Or it's possible it was a miscarriage or stillbirth. Of course it's no excuse for their actions, but I doubt they are all killing babies in cold blood for fun.

M51T- right on! Let's not let the fact that the baby was thrown in a bag and hidden in a wall obscure the possibility it was a proper, unavoidable and dignified death.

BONES?? just the BONES of a little infant?? I am no expert on these type of cases but how in the world does a body become only bones????? I hope their is no evil, satanic cult in Japan, we have enough of these evil satanic narcoterrorist drug dealers in Mexico. RIP little baby!

So, how many discarded baby and murdered children reports have we read in the last week? 10?

Disillusioned - If you're gonna continue to read these news stories about discarded and murdered children, you're going to become disillusioned.

I haven't researched this, but statistically Japan is probably no worse than most other countries as far as this goes.

Will 'Ltatue of Limitations' apply to this issue?

Do we really know what happened to this little one? No, of course not but everybody jumps to the conclusion the child was murdered. Possibly and probably but it's also possible the child died from sudden infant death syndrome and the parents freaked out and hid the body rather than reporting the death. I'm praying it's the latter....

I dont know what article you are talking about. The one I read only talks about a bunch of bones found in an apartment. It doesnt talk about mothers, crimes or any of the other things you mentioned. Maybe youy have access to info we don`t?
