Police investigating the discovery of a girl’s body at an Auckland recycling facility are searching for CCTV footage from around 100 trucks to find out how she got there.
The child’s body was discovered on the evening of August 16 by a worker who initially thought it was a doll.
Plant staff have been offered counseling and additional assistance.
The child was found with some clothes and a blue plastic bag, which the police have. Release photos as part of your investigation..
Detective Inspector Scott Baird said it was not yet clear if the items were attached to the child, but about a dozen people were in contact to share information, which was being followed.
“For example, some people think they have identified clothing, or know it, but it takes some time to figure out where it all came from.
“We don’t know 100 percent if the clothes and the blue bag are actually attached to the baby, or if it’s just found nearby.”
No cause of death has been identified yet. Which was born in the whole period., And toxicology tests were still being performed.
Police have not yet identified any area or route in the city, which may have been reached by recycling facility.
The beard said more than 100 trucks had arrived at the plant on Monday and found bodies, and it was taking some time to review the CCTV footage from those trucks.
“We have to prioritize the timing of these trucks and then work on the routes where they were picking up that day.”
“The police are open-minded about what could happen to the child and they are concerned about their mother’s well-being,” he said.
“Look, it could well be that she’s a very young mother there – it could be embarrassing, it could be cultural issues why the baby wasn’t born in the maternity ward and it’s hidden from us … You know, there are different reasons, and we have to be open-minded. “
She said the mother would need some help and assistance, which was her first priority, but acknowledged that this could not be practical for her, or that those who knew her should contact the police.
“Even if you don’t go directly to the police, go to a counselor, go to someone – eventually we want them to come to the police, but I don’t think it’s always easy for them, and They may use a third party to get to the police.
Until police know the full circumstances of the child’s death, Beard said he will not know what he is dealing with.
“It may well be that whenever it is raised in the media, the subject of the girl, there is a person … who does very strange things or goes into a shell, or something like that. ۔ “
“People saw that – and if they did, they should contact the police,” he said.
