Dead Baby Found in Dumpster in #London #Ontario #Canada

An autopsy on the body of a baby found in a dumpster in London, Ont., will help determine the facts around the infant's death, police say.

The body of the newborn was found about 11:35 a.m. Thursday in a dumpster near Richmond and Mill streets in the central part of the city.

"A 911 call was received from a citizen ... they were in the area of the dumpsters here and located what they believed to be a deceased infant in the dumpster," said Staff Sgt. Blair Harvey, who is with the London Police Service.

Officers confirmed that it was a baby when they arrived, he said.

London police's major crimes unit remained in the alley behind 675 Richmond St. for more than an hour Thursday.

Chris Afentoulopoulos owns one of the businesses that backs onto the parking lot where the body was found.

"This is crazy," he said. "I got a call from one of my staff and I tried to get here as fast as possible. This is something you can't comprehend."

Investigators said they're waiting for the coroner's report to provide more details about the infant after an autopsy is done on Friday.
