Calgary homicide detectives investigating death of newborn baby

Calgary’s Homicide Unit is investigating the death of a newborn baby whose body was discovered in a parking lot.

Police say a resident in the city’s Bowness neighbourhood called them late Sunday night after finding the infant’s body in a lot behind a grocery store.

A police statement issued early this morning says investigators believe the child could have been left there as early as late Sunday afternoon, however, it’s not clear how or when the baby died.

An autopsy is scheduled for Tuesday.

Police say they’re also concerned about the child’s mother, as evidence at the scene suggests she may be in medical distress.

They say they need to find her immediately, and are asking anyone with information to contact them.
