Teenage mum goes shopping with DEAD BABY she had killed stuffed into handbag

This was not the first baby she had 'apparently' killed

A mother who went shopping for sexy underwear in a Victoria's Secret store with her dead baby stuffed into her handbag has been jailed.

However when they inspected her bag they found the gruesome source of the smell - a tiny decomposing baby.

The teenager is said to have killed her baby after she delivered it in a bathroom in her friend's house in Queens.

New York news station PIX11 reports that Rodriguez has now been jailed for 16 years.

Guilty

She was sentenced after pleading guilty to manslaughter in January 2018 in what the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office said was a 'shocking' case.

A search, routine in cases like shoplifting, finally uncovered the appalling source of that foul stench.

The news channel said it later emerged that Rodriguez had deliberately killed the newborn child after delivering the baby in the bathroom of her friend’s apartment in Queens.

Homicide

That was according to district attorney Cyrus Vance in January. Her son had weighed about eight pounds at birth making it a normal size.

A post mortem was required to determine what if any foul play had taken place. The medical examiner later ruled the infants death was caused by homicidal asphyxiation.

And the tragedy didn't end there. That baby was not her first child. She also had a son when she was 14.

Her family didn’t know about that pregnancy until she went into labour. Then she delivered again in 2012, but that child didn’t survive.
