Police in Maebashi, Gunma Prefecture, arrested a 29-year-old woman Monday on suspicion of dumping the body of a newborn boy at the side of the road. The woman, identified as Kiyomi Inoue, has admitted to the charge and was quoted by police as saying: "His father was someone I hated."
Police said that Inoue dumped the infant's body, placenta and other waste at the side of the road at around 10 p.m. on Aug 27. According to police, the boy was about 47 centimeters long and weighed 2.2 kilograms, and had died before taking his first breath.
In the early-morning hours of Aug 28, Inoue was at a nearby convenience store when she was noticed by police on patrol because she had blood on her feet. Police said she has reportedly been sleeping in parks around the city since December of last year.© News reports
