Police investigate dead infant found in hospital bathroom

Hobbs, NM – A shocking discovery was made at Covenant Health Hobbs Hospital on Thursday when an infant was found deceased in a room occupied by a 16-year-old girl. The teenager was at the hospital for treatment, accompanied by her mother, when the tragic incident occurred.

Hospital staff stumbled upon the lifeless infant in the restroom and immediately alerted the police. The circumstances surrounding the infant’s death remain unclear, and authorities have launched an investigation to uncover the truth. The body of the infant has been transported to the Office of the Medical Investigator in Albuquerque for an autopsy to determine the cause of death.

This is not the first time such a distressing incident has occurred in a New Mexico hospital this year. Earlier in May, a similar case was reported when a 19-year-old woman, Alexee Trevizo, was charged with first-degree murder and tampering with evidence. Trevizo had given birth in a hospital bathroom, placed the newborn in a bag, and left the premises.

The investigators have yet to disclose whether the teenager or her mother will face any charges in the recent case. The inquiry is ongoing, and more information is expected to be released as the investigation progresses.

This series of events has raised concerns about the safety and well-being of infants in hospital settings. It also highlights the need for increased vigilance and support for young mothers, particularly those who may be dealing with complicated circumstances.
