Newborn baby found deceased at Phuket temple

Kathu –

A newborn baby was found deceased under a tree inside a temple in Kathu.

The Kathu Police was notified of the body at 5:00 P.M. yesterday (September 9th) at Ket Ho Temple.

Police arrived at the scene to find the newborn baby girl’s body inside a black plastic bag.

Monks told police that there was a foul smell before they saw the black plastic bag. They originally thought it was a dead dog as many people used to dump them here. Then, sadly, they found that it was a newborn baby’s body, a young girl.

Police have launched an investigation to find the baby’s mother and/or the person who dumped the child.
