HOUSTON (CBS Houston) Authorities found the remains of a baby despite sketchy details from the baby’s mother.

According to reports, a 29-year-old woman at Memorial Hermann Southwest Hospital told a nurse she had a baby recently. The woman also stated she wrapped the baby up and threw the newborn in a trash receptacle.

Investigators said the woman hid the pregnancy and was not financially able to keep the baby so she terminated her own pregnancy by taking pills. The woman was approximately 20 to 25 weeks pregnant.

Officers combed the trash dumpsters at the La Casita apartment complex at 313 Sunnyside in northwest Houston and even halted trash services there because they believed that the baby was inside one of the dumpsters.

Upon a more thorough investigation and after a conversation with the woman’s relatives, they found the remains of the baby at a home located in the 12300 block of Tambourine. The baby’s remains were uncovered in a trash receptacle inside of the home.

Police continue to investigate the case.
