The police found the child's father, who was put into the refuse bag in a reconnect. The twentieth until recently did not know about his fatherhood, he says.
In mid-January, the child was removed into a waste bag at Reconvilier BE. Now the police have identified the baby's biological father. It's a 20-year-old retail specialist from Neuchâtel, reports Le Matin. It should be politically active in the region.
"I will recognize my little girl," he says to the newspaper. "It's my duty as a father, that's the only thing I can do." He will never be able to care for her, said the 20-year-old. "I gave her the name, I called her Leila. Her mom gave her another name.
When the police contacted him, he fell from the clouds. "I did not know about this, I became a father without knowing." The woman met regularly, but was not his girlfriend. In April or May 2018 they split up and met at random only a few times.
"It's a shock to experience this at the age of 20," says the young man. "There are no words to describe how I feel."
The man is temporarily detained
The deceased baby was found on 17 January at the parking lot at the local festival hall. On Friday, the judiciary and the police said they found a woman who might be a mother.
Police temporarily arrested a man. It turned out that this was not the physical father of a dead child. Mom was forced into the institution and was treated there.
The Institute of Legal Medicine of the University of Bern continues to investigate the cause of the child's death. The first findings showed that the child lived at birth. (SDA / Rey)
