(Antigua Observer) Investigators in the Royal Police Force of Antigua & Barbuda (RPFAB) are hoping that the mother of a six-month-old foetus that was discovered at Crawl Bay, Wednesday, will come forward voluntarily to speak to authorities.
Yesterday, Police Public Relations Officer (PRO) Inspector Frankie Thomas told OBSERVER media that they are “following certain leads”.
However, he said that at this time, the priority for the police is to locate the mother who is responsible.
“We would love to have her to assist in our investigations and to offer her the necessary help and assistance that she may require at this time,” the inspector said.
Once in custody, the plan is to have the woman give “better information” about what happened and why the foetus was discarded.
