Czech Republic – On Feb. 12, 2015 in Břeclavsko, Dolni Dunajovice in the south-east of the Czech Republic, emergency medics were called to a house assist a woman in distress. She had just given birth yet the child was nowhere to be found. Police were called in. They discovered the infant, dead, but also found the remains of two other long-deceased newborns, one of them having been killed in 2012.
Her motive for killing the children was, reports say, her fear that her boyfriend would leave her if she kept the children alive. She has two other children, who are cared after by their natural father. It is thought that her current paramour had been unaware of the pregnancies.
Police also suspect the parents of the dead newborns of producing illegal methamphetamine in their home.
