·1 min read

A newborn baby was found dead in a bushy area outside the cemetery in Sitio Dapdap, Barangay Poblacion 3, Carcar City, southern Cebu on Wednesday morning, May 11, 2022.

Lieutenant Col. Ardioleto Cabagnot, chief of Carcar City Police Station, told SunStar Cebu that a concerned citizen called their office to seek assistance after the discovery of the baby at the back of the cemetery.

Cabagnot said that the unpleasant smell coming from the area has led residents to locate the newborn baby, which was placed inside a sack and reportedly eaten by a stray dog.

His severed head was found separately at a rice field in Sitio Baha-baha, Barangay Liburon, Carcar City.

The Carcar police are still tracking down the parents of the baby to invite them for questioning. (GDC, TPT)
