A female infant was found dead and wrapped in a black garbage bag by her mother yesterday
morning, the Hsinchu City Police Department said.
Police said that the mother found the body on a deck chair beside the front porch of her house.
Police said the dead infant was fathered by a 37-year-old man surnamed Chen (陳), who does not live with the 40 year-old mother, surnamed Lin (林).
Chen had visited Lin on Sunday last week at her residence on Jhonghe Road and asked to take the infant back to his residence in Siangshan District (香山), saying that he had not seen the child in a long time, police said. [FULL STORY]
