Place: Ferndale Road, Teignmouth
A baby was found wrapped up in brown paper near Ferndale Road in Teignmouth.
Her left frontal bone was fractured its full length and it was thought that considerable violence must have been used to cause her death.
A youth who had found the parcel said that it was lying on the top of a hedge and was wrapped up in 2-3 layers of wrapping paper.
