The body of a dead infant, with its umbilical cord still attached, was discovered in a backyard. The naked newborn’s remains were discovered on Tuesday behind a home in Highlands Ranch, Colorado, according to the Denver Post.
The alleged mother, Camille Wasinger-Konrad, 23, was arrested on first-degree murder charges. She was renting out a room in the area where the baby was found, according to the Denver Channel. A witness called police after making the horrendous discovery. The exact cause of death has not yet been determined.
Wasinger-Konrad is being held without bond. It is unclear at this time if she has a lawyer who can speak on her behalf. Her grandfather told 9 News that in recent months, she looked pregnant and had rapidly gained weight, but when he allegedly confronted Wasinger-Konrad about the possibility of her being pregnant, she denied it.
