Police say a 27-year-old woman, who was transported to a Port Charlotte hospital for heaving bleeding Sunday night, had a secret.
Hospital workers told police they might want to go back to the woman’s home because apparently she had given birth to a baby.
When the officers went back to the woman’s house, they found the infant’s body in a freezer Monday night and now authorities in Charlotte County say an autopsy is pending for an infant whose body was found in a freezer at the Punta Gorda home.
Punta Gorda police told the Sarasota Herald-Tribune the baby’s death is considered suspicious and numerous law enforcement agencies are investigating.
According to a police report, paramedics and police were called to the home Sunday night for a medical emergency involving a 27-year-old woman, who was transported to a Port Charlotte hospital for heavy bleeding.
Police say the hospital gave them information that prompted officers to return to the woman’s home. The police report says officers found the infant’s body in a freezer Monday night.
