NRW: dead baby found in Lüdenscheid – the case puzzles the police

The body of a newborn baby was discovered in the basement of a house in Lüdenscheid on Tuesday. The girl was apparently hiding there. This gave rise to the suspicion that it could be a homicide.


This is Lüdenscheid:

  • one of the largest cities in the Sauerland
  • belongs to the Märkisches Kreis
  • a little over 71,000 inhabitants live here (as of December 2021)
  • known as the “City of Light” because of the lamp and lighting industry


The murder commission of the Hagen police therefore took over the case and temporarily arrested the child’s mother. However, she had to release the 43-year-old due to a lack of urgent suspicion.


More reports from NRW:


Even an autopsy could not clarify whether the girl was born alive or dead. The investigation is still ongoing, so the police cannot provide any further information. (mbo)
