KOTA KINABALU: A woman was cleaning out rubbish bins at the Cyber City Apartment II near here when she noticed a plastic bag, thinking that it contained chicken.
Without much thought, the cleaner took the bag from among the trash, and felt that it was a bit too heavy.
She put it on the ground and checked it properly, only to find a dead baby girl with its umbilical cord still attached.
Penampang police chief Deputy Supt Haris Ibrahim said the woman alerted police of her 10.20am find on Sunday (July 28).
“Medical officials found that the baby was already lifeless,” he said.
DSP Haris said the body was taken to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital for a post-mortem.
“Anyone with information about this case can contact us and assist with investigations,” he said.
