BBC news article: Woman hid dead baby in car boot.
A woman hid the body of her new born baby boy in her boot. But the story doesn’t end there:
… she kept the pregnancy from her partner of 11 years, convincing everyone she was putting on weight due to an allergy.
… she had in fact been leading a “double life” and had been having an affair with a work colleague, who she said was the baby’s father.
… she had told a number of lies to work colleagues including saying she had cancer and … her mother had suffered a stroke.
Then Christmas happened:
But Jones spent Christmas … with her own mother and saw a show on 27 December. On the same day, she sent Mr Bezerra (the assumed father) a text saying her mother had died and she was in a hospice in Pontypool.
And, guess what …
… some time in the morning of 28 December, Jones gave birth to a 7.5 lb (3.4 kg) baby boy in the ground floor toilet of Mr Stoneman’s (the partner) parents’ house. … Jones wrapped the baby’s body in paper towels and a black bag and put it in the boot of her car.
BTW – no-one knows how the baby died, or if it was a stillbirth.
So, how did they find out the truth?
She missed her delivery date at the hospital. And she sent this text to the father:
Our baby son has died, he did not survive the cancer.
The father eventually went to the police on the 5th Jan.
The baby has been in the boot since 28 Dec.
I am speechless …
