A teenage girl found carrying a dead fetus in a shopping bag at a Manhattan lingerie store is headed toward trial on a shoplifting charge.
An autopsy of a fetus found in a teenage girl’s shopping bag at a New York City lingerie store was inconclusive, and more tests will be needed to determine how the fetus died, the city medical examiner’s office says.
The teen told officers she was carrying the human remains because she had delivered a day earlier and didn’t know what to do, authorities said.
Two teenage girls who were suspected of shoplifting were stopped as they were leaving a Victoria’s Secret store in Midtown, and a security guard checking their bags found what appeared to be a fetus, the NYPD said Thursday.
Cops told 1010 WINS that a 19-year-old girl showed up at Einstein Hospital on Saturday night and told the staff that she had “given birth or had a miscarriage.”
Yaribely Almonte, 20, is accused of wrapping the fetus of her unborn daughter in plastic and dumping it in a garbage bin outside of her West 191st Street apartment.
