In a horrific discovery, the charred body of a newborn baby girl was found discarded in a rubbish pile near a resort in Thailand‘s northeast Nakhon Ratchasima province. The incident, which took place yesterday, was reported to the Pho Klang Police Station, leading authorities and rescue teams to investigate the disturbing scene.

The body was discovered in an empty lot across from a resort in the Pho Klang district. Wrapped in a cloth, the baby’s burnt corpse was found among the rubbish, leading authorities to believe it was brought from another location. The body was sent for an autopsy at Maharat Nakhon Ratchasima Hospital.

Sukanya, a 41 year old resort housekeeper who found the baby’s remains, explained that the area was usually used for the resort’s rubbish disposal and was generally undisturbed. Upon bringing garbage to the site, she noticed something resembling a body. Initially assuming it to be a dead dog or a doll, she used a stick to check and discovered a spine and legs protruding from the cloth. Upon further inspection, she found the complete, intact body of the newborn baby. The housekeeper also reported finding remnants of afterbirth nearby, suggesting that an animal may have dragged it to the location.

Sukanya wasted no time in informing the resort manager who then contacted the police. She had no information regarding the baby’s origin and stated that she had not seen any heavily pregnant women in the vicinity.

This alarming discovery has sparked an investigation to identify and apprehend those involved in the cruel treatment and abandonment of the newborn baby.
