    NY - Tiona Rodriguez, 17, charged in death of newborn, Queens, 16 Oct 2013

    5:17 p.m. EDT October 17, 2013NEW YORK (AP)
    — New York City police say two teenage girls believed to be shoplifting were stopped as they were leaving a Manhattan store, and a security guard checking their bags found what appeared to be a fetus.
    Both girls are 17 years old. One was hospitalized and the other is being questioned at a police precinct. The medical examiner's office is performing an autopsy on the apparent human remains found inside the bag.
    The girls were shopping at a Victoria's Secret lingerie store in midtown Manhattan on Thursday. Police are trying to determine if one girl gave birth in the store, or if she had been carrying the remains with her. more at link: http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/n...s-bag/3004163/

    Wow! I hope they give more details on this story. If they are calling it a fetus, I suspect it was a miscarriage. But, I can't imagine it happened in the store. Miscarriages aren't pretty.

    If one girl is in the hospital, she must have just passed the fetus. I've had a miscarriage and it wasn't messy. I didn't even know I had until I was ultrasounded.

    How far along were you Renee? To be termed a fetus, it needs to be at least 9 weeks into the pregnancy, and to be recognizable as a fetus, she would have needed to have been at least 10-11 weeks along. At 11 weeks the fetus is only about an inch and a half long, so I suspect she was even further along than that. I just can't imagine passing that without pain and a fair amount of blood involved.

    I guess I misspoke....I didn't miscarry and lose the whole fetus.

    I was seven months pregnant. I miscarried, but didn't know. I had lost the fetal pole. I spotted for a few days, and on my next appointment there was no heartbeat so they ultrasounded me. They did have to induce me etc....because I didn't pass the fetus on my own. It was strange. The baby had been gone (dead) for 2 weeks and I thought I had felt it move around that whole time. I remember the Dr. explaining to me what it was that I felt, but I can't remember now what the said. Blocked it out I suppose.

    I did miscarry another time when I was about 8 weeks along and it was like having a period. I didn't have to have anything (procedure-wise) done with that one.... but it wasn't messy or painful....or that's how I remember it....it was 20 years ago...

    I've read about girls who have had babies in the bathroom and then they just go back to work or to prom or whatever. I remember reading about a girl who had a baby at school in the bathroom and just went back to class. Crazy.

    The link in the first post looks like it's been updated. There seems to be more information there now, unless it missed it earlier.

    "The 17-year-old girls were shopping at a Victoria's Secret store in midtown Manhattan, said police, who were called to the scene after a guard noticed a strong odor coming from one of the bags and found the fetus. One of the girls told detectives she was carrying the human remains because she had delivered a day earlier and didn't know what to do, authorities said. It wasn't clear whether the fetus was alive or dead when delivered.

    The girls were arrested on charges of petit larceny and criminal possession of stolen property, police said. The teen thought to have given birth was hospitalized, and the other was questioned by police. The medical examiner's office was performing an autopsy on the remains. More serious charges could follow, depending on the cause of death."


    So if she's being truthful, it seems she was far enough along to go into labor and give birth and was carrying her dead baby around with her. Seems like a very odd thing to do, and to then go shoplifting with the baby's remains with her?

    snip....discovered that one of the teens was carrying a plastic bag with the fetus of a baby boy inside, according to the NYPD.

    The girl later told police that she had given birth to a fetus Wednesday and did know who what to do with the body, reports the station.

    Autopsy will determine if there are more charges. The girl who gave birth has a two year old already.

    I miscarried at about 7 seven weeks. It was very painful like labor for a few mintues. How strange to go shoplifting and carry the remains. Maybe hoping her parents wouldn't find the body of the fetus.

    Hope it's not true but NDN and DM are reporting that the baby was born alive and nearly full term, might have been asphyxiated and homicide charges are contemplated.

    According to "sources", that is.

    I'm so sorry about the loss of your babies.

    I'm sorry, but if they recognized that the baby is a boy and are uncertain whether he was born alive or not, we are not talking about an early miscarriage that might be mistaken for a heavy period.

    Even if we were, when was the last time you saved the material from your period and carried it around in a jar with you? She KNEW and was trying to pretend it didn't happen.

    A miscarriage is the loss of a baby before twenty weeks. After that it is either a stillbirth or premature birth, depending on whether or not the baby is alive at delivery.

    This girl is all kinds of screwed up and needs more than just medical attention. I don't hold out a lot of hope for the girl who was with her either.

    I almost wonder if the shoplifting while carrying the fetus in her bag was a way of hoping to get caught, have someone discover the fetus, and get her help. I think this was a cry for help & she was hoping she'd get caught and someone would find the fetus.

    I initially suspected a late term miscarriage because of the use of the word "fetus" as opposed to "newborn" or "premature baby". Usually when you hear of a girl/woman disposing of a full term fetus, it's referred to as a newborn or a baby.

    MSM saying fetus made me think of a recognizable, but not viable fetus that she would have had to have gone into labor to pass, up to maybe 24 weeks along.


    The autopsy came back as inconclusive, and they will be doing more testing on it.

    I don't know if New York Daily news is considered MSM, but this article indicates she may have been up to 28 weeks, which, without NICU care, would likely mean the baby would have passed quickly.

    http://www.nydailynews.com/news/crim...icle-1.1488876

    It's in the back of my mind wondering if she had a premature rupture of membranes. I wonder if that happening would cause the remains to appear asphyxiated?

    I know that giving birth to an already deceased premature baby can cause major trauma to the baby's body.
