Cwmcarn baby can now be laid to rest
A baby boy found dead behind a local Spar shop can be laid to rest after a coroner formally released his body.
The newborn baby was found wrapped in a towel in a carrier bag, which was hanging on a gatepost, behind the Spar in a lane off Newport Road, in Cwmcarn, on March 18.
Coroner’s officer Howard Salmon told the inquest: “A post-mortem examination carried out by a Home Office pathologist proved inconclusive.
“Further tests have been undertaken and investigations by Gwent Police continue.”
A woman had been arrested on suspicion of concealment of a birth and has been bailed pending further inquiries.
The inquest into the boy’s death was opened and adjourned in Newport.Follow @CaerphillyObsvr
