Baby's body found dumped in strawberry field
The body was found about 9:30 a.m. Monday in the field in the 3200 block of Central Avenue in an unincorporated area northwest of Camarillo, Sgt. Eric Buschow of the Ventura County Sheriff's Department said.
He said the mother could have left the infant at a fire station or hospital.
"There's no reason for this kind of thing to happen," Buschow told The Times.
The case was being investigated as a homicide. Detectives believe the body was dumped in the field between Sunday night and early Monday morning.
Anyone with information is asked to call Det. Joe Evans at (805) 384-4721.
