    Newborn Found Dead Inside Home

    Officials are investigating the suspicious death of a baby found inside the bedroom of a Bucks County home.

    Investigators say a woman was visiting a friend on the 200 block of Lakeside in Tullytown on Wednesday around 11 a.m. when she noticed a smell coming from a bedroom. When she walked in, police say she found the remains of a newborn inside a black trash bag. 

    The woman contacted police who took the child’s mother in for questioning. According to court documents, the mother told police she didn’t realize she was pregnant until she gave birth to the child. She allegedly told police she thought the baby was stillborn and placed the child in the bag.

    The coroner is currently performing an autopsy on the child to determine the exact cause of death.

    Investigators say the results won’t be revealed until Monday. No charges have been filed yet as police continue to investigate.
