According to the Roseville Police Department, the body of a newborn baby was discovered Monday morning just before 8 o’clock at Saugstad Park. The grisly discovery was made by a work crew from the City of Roseville Parks and Recreation department.

The body of the full-term baby was wrapped in plastic bags and stuffed into a diaper box, then hidden in some bushes along a bike trail. Police did make note that the diaper box was not a box for newborn diapers, but a box for older toddlers.
