Details of Incident

Detectives are continuing to investigate the suspicious death of a baby in Ipswcih after a post-mortem examination was inconclusive.


Officers were called at just after 12.35pm on Saturday 9 December to a property in Norwich Road, where the body of a newborn baby had been discovered outside the premises.


Paramedics were also in attendance, but the baby was sadly declared deceased a short time later.


Following initial police enquiries on Saturday afternoon, officers subsequently arrested two men aged in their 30s and a teenage female, all on suspicion of murder.


On Monday 11 December, the two men were released on bail until Tuesday 6 February pending further enquiries.


The female remained in police custody, having arrived at Martlesham Police Investigation Centre at a later time than the men.  She was released under investigation on Tuesday 12 December, pending further enquiries.


A Home Office post-mortem examination took place on Tuesday 12 December and was inconclusive, with further tests required.
