POLICE in Bulawayo are investigating a case of a mutilated newborn baby that was dumped at a house in Barbourfields last week.

Provincial ppokesperson Inspector Abednico Ncube yesterday said Barbourfields police received information on July 27 that a woman had discovered a baby’s two lower limbs a few metres from a house in the suburb.

“Barbourfields CID Homicide and Scenes of Crime attended the scene. They observed two lower limbs of a newborn baby and some blood stains on the ground. The limbs were cut off just above the knees,” he said.

Ncube said they got another tip-off that there was more evidence along the railway line just a few metres from the crime
scene.

“Police officers also found a shopping bag with blood stains. Inside the shopping bag were a small mirror (glass) and a placenta. The body parts were taken to United Bulawayo Hospitals Mortuary for post-mortem and investigations are in progress.”

Ncube appealed to members of the public who have information that could lead to the arrest of the suspect.
