The parents murdered their newborn boy, wrapped the body in a towel, put a label ‘welcome to the family’ and then buried it in their garden. It seems they already had three babies and a fourth was one too many.
The incident that happened in the town of Juterborg near Berlin was two years old and would have remained under wraps – but, the woman babbled in a drunken state about it and the cat came out of the bag.
The police came, dug up the remains and dragged the couple to court in Potsdam. Both are now blaming each other for having committed the murder.
