Police Find Body of Newborn Infant in Central Lubbock

Lubbock police have found the body of a newborn infant at 2009 Avenue L.

Police were called to a home in the near 20th and Avenue L around 2 a.m. Wednesday morning. Sources tell NewsChannel 11 that the child's mother went to Covenant Medical Center earlier today, and told the staff that she had given birth to baby at home. She claimed the baby was deceased and had buried it next to her garage.

Gina Rodriguez tells NewsChannel 11 she lives in the home. She says she took the woman to the emergency room, but Rodriguez says she did not know the woman was pregnant. "We took her to the emergency because she said her stomach was hurting. She said she hadn't had her period in a while, but she started bleeding a lot and said she felt like fainting," said Gina.

Lubbock Police detectives, Children's Protective Services and the medical examiner were all on the scene trying to figure out suspicious death which ended up being what police say was a stillborn baby.

According to Detective Greg Stevens, the child was found deceased at residence and that indications are baby had been born at the residence. Stevens says they are proceeding with the case as a suspicious death but are still investigating.

We'll have more on this developing story tonight on NewsChannel 11 at 10.
