    Canada - Remains of three newborns found at London home, 9 June 2009

    In case you hadn't heard (and I couldn't find a thread here for it - please move/link if I missed it), there is a bizarre case in London that has come out the past couple of days - a 32-year-old mother was found to have hidden the remains of a baby in her basement. I believe she was charged with failure to report a dead body, and mistreating human remains. It is not clear that she committed murder, but just concealed the death.

    Well, now the case gets weirder.

    Today, the results of the ME report is saying there were actually THREE dead babies in the basement... Very strange case.

    http://lfpress.ca/newsstand/News/Loc...9/9736411.html

    The news is still pretty sketchy, but I'm waiting to hear new developments, particularly how the babies died.

    Anyone think they might have died of some sort of natural cause, and she went out of her mind with grief? The increase of the number to three kind of makes that harder to believe, for me - what do you think?

    Also, there seems to be some haziness over whether this woman really was the mother of the dead baby/babies. Any further info on this?

    I wonder how many missing infants there are in the area of London? That will be a tough one to wonder about until (a) my above question is cleared up, and (b) the time frame is determined.

    LONDON, Ont. - The remains of three infants not one were found in the basement of a London home, an autopsy has revealed.

    Police said the remains of all three infants were in advanced stages of decomposition.

    Jennifer Sinn, 32, a woman who lived at the home until recently, is in custody charged with concealing the body of a child and offering an indignity to a body.

    They say the investigation into manner of death is ongoing. I wonder if more charges will be added.

    It will be interesting when and if people who know Jennifer start talking. Did they ever see her pregnant? Did they ever see her with any children? I have been looking in the comments of the news articles but haven't seen any postings that offer any info.

    The news reports have been really sketchy, which is weird considering the oddity of the case.

    The woman, Jennifer Sinn, 32, was originally arrested on Saturday and released on conditions after what was thought to be the remains of one baby were found in the basement of 1302 Standford Street

    Sinn was re-arrested today after police discovered they are dealing with three, not one, infant remains.




    More charges are expected, said London Police Supt. Ken Heslop.

    neighbourhood say they are shocked and disturbed by news that the remains of three infants were discovered in a box in the basement of a neighbour's home.


    "We hardly spoke to those people at all, they were really recluse," said Karen Elliott, a mother of three. Ms. Elliott said she lived next door to Jennifer Sinn, 32, who has been charged with three counts of concealing the body of a child and three counts of offering an indignity to a dead human body in connection with deaths of the infants.

    Police say the severely decomposed remains of three babies found in a southwestern Ontario home suggest they may have died years ago.

    It shouldn't be too hard to determine if the babies were genetically related to her. Either way - I always find these cases odd because WHY would you KEEP the bodies??? Especially, if they are several years old. Wouldn't you think that at some point, you would have found a place to bury them.....or something???

    In one of the articles I posted above, they talk about another woman who kept 2 bodies over a period of time.

    Ms. Sinn's lawyer, Jeanine LeRoy, said her client made a brief court appearance Tuesday and was to appear again for a video remand June 19.

    Ms. LeRoy, who has also taken on the high-profile defence of one of the two people charged with murder in the disappearance of Victoria Stafford in Woodstock, Ont., said she could not comment further on Ms. Sinn's case.


    Ms LeRoy will handle two cases that we are covering here on WS. Guess we will see a lot of her in the news.

    Too bad Vince Li is out of her jurisdiction - otherwise, she could really scoop up the trifecta of notoriety.
