A teenage girl who was arrested in connection with the alleged murder of a newborn baby has now been released from police custody. 

Suffolk police confirmed that all three suspects in the case - two men and a teenage girl - have now been released pending further enquiries. 

Officers were called at just after 12.35pm on Saturday, December 9 to a property in Norwich Road, where the body of a newborn baby had been discovered outside the premises.

Paramedics also attended the scene, but the baby was declared deceased a short while later. 

A Home Office post-mortem has been taking place this afternoon, Tuesday, December 12, but the findings have not yet been released.

Following initial enquiries, two men in their 30s and a teenage female were all arrested on suspicion of murder. 

Detectives were granted more time to question the suspects following their arrest, after a warrant of further detention was granted by Suffolk Magistrates' Court. 


Yesterday, Monday, December 11, the two men were released on bail until Tuesday, February 6.

The teenage girl remained in police custody, having arrived at Martlesham Police Investigation Centre at a later time than the men.

Detectives are continuing to treat this as an isolated incident and a small police scene remains in place within the property on Norwich Road.

Any witnesses or anyone with any information that could assist the enquiry is asked to contact the Major Investigation Team by calling 101.

Speaking at the weekend, Colin Kreidewolf, who represents Westgate ward on Ipswich Borough Council, said: "It is a tragic event for Ipswich. I have spoken to a few people and yes, people are understandably quite shocked by it."
