BACOLOD CITY – A baby boy wrapped in a manila paper was found dead at Hacienda Sta. Maria, Brgy. Zone 15, Talisay City, Negros Occidental Wednesday, Oct. 16.
Maj. Jigger Gimeno, city police chief, said the baby was believed to be between five and six months old.
Gimeno said the baby was left by an unidentified person at the sugarcane field early that day.
Some civilians saw the baby at the roadside at past 5 p.m. and called for assistance from the police assigned at the border control security area, he added.
The baby was brought to the City Health Office to check the possible cause of his death.
