Fetus found dead in Muntinlupa terminal

A dead fetus was found in a garbage bin inside a transport terminal in Muntinlupa City on Thursday afternoon.

In a report submitted to city police chief Senior Supt. Dionisio Bartolome, a certain Noe Orale was about to collect trash in one of the garbage bins at South Station terminal in Barangay Alabang at 12:50 p.m.


He noticed the “unusual weight” of the trash when he picked it up, prompting him to look at its contents.

He found a dead female fetus, around 5 to 7 months old, with its umbilical cord and placenta still intact.


The fetus was inside a black garbage bag concealed in another plastic bag and paper bag of a convenience store chain.

In the report, police said they were unable to identify who might have left the plastic bag containing the fetus based on interviews with the convenience store cashiers and security guards.

No closed-circuit television cameras were also installed in the premises of South Station, it added.

The fetus was turned over to the personnel of Barangay Alabang, who brought it to San Roque Catholic Church for final blessing, before it was interred at the Muntinlupa City Public Cemetery.
