Vegas-area police: Baby boy found dead in trash bin

January 20, 2020 - 6:05 PM

LAS VEGAS - Police are investigating the death of an infant boy whose body was found in an alley trash bin in a North Las Vegas neighbourhood.

Officer Eric Leavitt said Monday that police were called a little before 9 a.m. Sunday and investigators think the child was younger than 6 months old.

The body didn’t show any obvious physical injuries, Leavitt said, and police asked for public help to identify him.

The Clark County coroner’s office is expected in coming days to release his identity and cause and manner of death.

The neighbourhood is about a 20-minute drive north of the Las Vegas Strip.
