Identity of dead baby still a mystery
The identity of a dead baby whose mummified remains were discovered near a Hamilton Parish churchyard ten days ago remains a mystery.
But police have said they do not suspect foul play after the male infant was found by a landscaper in an area of undergrowth beyond the perimeter wall of the Holy Trinity Church.
It is understood the body was wearing a medical band around his wrist.
Police were called to the scene and the area was cordoned off to enable teams from the Forensic Support Unit and Criminal Investigation Unit to establish how the body had ended up outside the church grounds.
A police spokesman said: “The Bermuda Police Service is still working with King Edward VII Memorial Hospital as well as church officials to find out the identity of the child whose remains were found on Friday, May 9 near to a grave site on Trinity Church Road in Hamilton Parish.
“This is a delicate matter and as previously stated, foul play is not suspected.”
