Police in Omiya, Saitama Prefecture, have arrested a 23-year-old woman who turned herself in at a police station, carrying a bag which contained the body of her newborn son.
According to police, the woman, identified as Minayo Abo, walked into the Omiya police station at around 8 p.m. on Sunday. Fuji TV quoted a police spokesman as saying Abo was a resident of Okubo in Shinjuku Ward in Tokyo and was unemployed.
Abo was quoted by police as saying the baby died at childbirth one week earlier and that she was alone when she gave birth. No external wounds were apparent on the baby's body, which still had the umbilical cord attached, police said.© Japan Today
