25-year-old Japanese mother kills newborn in cafe, leaves corpse in storage locker
The 25-year-old Japanese mother Mao Togawa brutally killed her newborn baby in a cafe in Tokyo and dumped the body in a locker last month. It was only after a filthy smell of the decomposing infant body started circulating, that the body was discovered.
According to the Police officer, an infant was choked to death by mother who later admitted that she killed the baby. She even said that she went to the cafe in January where she killed the baby "because she cried" and later placed her body in a suitcase and abandoned it in a nearby baggage locker.
Does a newborn baby, fresh from the birth canal, have any thoughts or concept of the future? So is it okay to kill that child? I mean, the mother could have had him killed at any time during her pregnancy, because it’s her “choice”, right?— Lissa Tipple (@LissaTipple) May 26, 2018
12 minutes into this newscast and with the exception of the lead story being the final debate, it's all been murders, including that of a newborn baby allegedly killed by it's 15-year-old mother. Smh.— Stephanie. (@stephanie_hinds) May 27, 2018
During the investigation, she shared that she gave birth in the cafe and she immediately killed the infant as she cried.
Police questioned the suspect after CCTV footage showed her slotting coins into the locker - in a busy area with many restaurants and hotels - to keep it closed.
