A 43-year-old woman and a 47-year-old man are suspected of having buried one fetus in the backyard of the residence where they live in Santana do Cafezal Neighborhood, Center-South Region of Belo Horizonte.
A Military police (PM) was at the scene on Sunday night after complaints. The residents were in another residence and were questioned by the military. Initially, the couple denied, but accompanied the military to the house where they live.
Arriving there, the woman ended up saying that, around midnight on Saturday, she felt severe pain and went to the bathroom. There, she was surprised when the fetus fell into the toilet, lifeless. She said she had not menstruated since March, but did not know she was pregnant, considering her age.
According to the police, her husband said he wanted to call the Mobile Emergency Service (Samu), but was allegedly prevented by her. He then placed the fetus in a plastic bag and, at around 2 pm, buried it in the yard.
The woman was taken to the Santa Casa de Belo Horizonte, where she was hospitalized under escort. Her companion, on the other hand, was taken to the Flagrant Central 3 of the Civil Police (Ceflan 3).
