Saitama Prefectural Police have re-arrested a 26-year-old woman on suspicion of corpse abandonment in 2018 after the remains of an infant’s body were found in the attic of her parents’ home in Kasukabe, Saitama Prefecture.

Saito, an unemployed resident of Saitama’s Kawagoe City, was first arrested on Sept 2 for abandoning the body of her newborn son after giving birth in her apartment, Sankei Shimbun reported. She told police she gave birth early that morning and placed the infant in a plastic case and left it in a closet.

Saito shared the apartment with a man who told police that he didn't know when the baby was born.

On Wednesday, Saito told investigators that another infant’s remains were stored in the attic of her parents’ home. Police found the remains of the infant whose gender is unknown.

Police quoted Saito as saying the infant died three years ago. However, she has given no information on the circumstances surrounding the baby’s death or who the father was.

One, maybe forgivable, but two. Parents and the man she's living with all liars and enablers

Ever heard of a condom, you useless human parasite? Give her lobotomy so she doesn't have the mental capacity to ever reproduce again.

Forgivable by who? She is old enough to take responsibility for her actions all of which were avoidable.

Get her help please, she is mentally ill and need counseling.

Has this woman never heard of contraceptives? How utterly selfish and vile of her to murder two helpless infants. She could have also given them up for adoption or tapped into whatever is the equivalent of the Baby Moses Law in Japan. I really hope they lock her up for this.

Twice, people living with her didn't notice she was pregnant for nine freaking months? Seriously? And Japanese Asian women, for the most part, are skinnier so the baby bumps are very noticeable.

When awareness of Human mental illness is socially deprecated, these are the stories which will greet one from time to time. Cause and effect encapsulated...

If only governments were so disposed for the unconscionable horrors they commit routinely...

Clearly someone who speaks from experience however poorly the procedure actually worked...

Some Japanese women are so slim that you won't recognize they are pregnant. I know because I was surprised when my neighbor showed me her newborn cute baby.
