Man discovers dead newborn baby inside plastic bag left in freezer


A man has described the shocking moment he opened a plastic bag found in a freezer only to see that it contained the remains of a dead newborn baby.

Shop worker Darnell Jackson, 23, ran to the house in Doncaster, South Yorkshire, England, at some time between 11.30am and midday on Thursday, Dec. 16.

He had been told by his partner Carol Hirst, 28, to go to the house after she had seen the baby.

“I thought she must be telling the truth but I had to go and check for myself,” he told the Mirror.

“Carol said to me, ‘There’s a dead baby’, and that’s when she hung up.”

He said Carol was on the phone to police while he went through the house and saw a plastic bag moved from the freezer to the living room.

“I just literally grabbed the bag to take a look and straight away I could tell it was a dead baby,” he went on.

“The baby was in the foetal position. You could see that the skin was frozen, there was a lot of frost on its legs.”

Carol said she was also “traumatised” by what she had seen and went home to see her own baby.

South Yorkshire Police arrested two women aged 17 and 45 on suspicion of murder following the discovery of the murdered newborn at the house in Norman Crescent in the Rossington area of the town.

The arrested pair remain in police custody.
