Woman Under Suspicion of Infanticide

Limassol police are investigating a 33-year-old woman who is under suspicion of infanticide after a newborn baby was found dead underneath her bed.

"She has not been arrested, we are studying forensic evidence to establish how the baby died," said a police spokeswoman speaking to CyprusNewsReport.com.

The 33-year-old is from the Philippines and works as a housemaid in Limassol, said the spokeswoman. The woman is being treated for internal haemorraging in Limassol General Hospital and it appears she gave birth to the baby, which was found in a plastic bag.

Limassol CID are investigating.
