She would be the mother of the newborn baby found Monday in a sports bag floating in a canal in Grande-Synthe (North). A 37-year-old woman was indicted on Thursday for "aggravated homicide" and placed under judicial supervision, indicates the Dunkirk prosecutor's office. The latter had requested pre-trial detention and will therefore appeal this decision.
The autopsy of the body did not allow "to affirm that the child was born alive" therefore "additional examinations will be carried out". They should make it possible "to determine with certainty the living character of the infant".
Children had discovered the baby
According to this source, this woman, who had been placed in police custody Tuesday morning, admitted having given birth to this infant and then put the body in a bag before throwing it into the canal.
These are children who had carried out "the repatriation of the bag on the bank" while it "was stagnant in the water". Upon discovering its contents, a child warned his mother who herself "called the police."
