The collector and his companions were collecting garbage at the Children’s Park area where he carried the garbage bin going to the garbage truck. While he was pouring the trash inside the truck, he saw a transparent bag with blood stains that prompted him to check its content.
Upon checking, he saw a body of a lifeless male infant, wrapped in a black cloth and informed the security guard and reported the incident to the Tourist Police Unit-BCPO and Police Station 7.

The infant’s body was brought to Baguio Cathedral Church and subsequently turned over to the Baguio Memorial Chapel, Naguillian Road, Baguio City for funeral services.
The conduct for autopsy examination is being requested to determine the possible cause and time of death of the said male infant.
