CRIME SEP. 12, 2012 -TSUKUBA —
Police said Tuesday they have arrested a 30-year-old woman in Tsukuba, Ibaraki Prefecture, following the discovery of the body of her one-week-old baby daughter in a coin locker.

According to police, the infant’s body was found wrapped in a plastic shopping bag in a bus terminal locker on Sept 8 at around 10 a.m., TV Asahi reported. Police used surveillance camera footage to trace the bag back to the mother, identified as Miyuki Nagamine, who was arrested on Monday.

Nagamine was quoted by police as saying she had given birth alone on Sept 3 and then put the child in the locker, TV Asahi reported. Police said an autopsy will be conducted to determine the exact cause of the infant’s death.
