By Aaron Humes: Police say a Belize City mother told them of a 4-month fetus buried in a shallow grave in the Jane Usher Boulevard area which was found this morning.
However, police are still investigating whether a crime was committed. Assistant Commissioner of Police Chester Williams reports that authorities were first alerted last night and recovered the body this morning.
However, police are not sure if it was a miscarriage and quiet burial, or a possible abortion attempt and concealment of childbirth, which would be a criminal offence.
