Further tests will be required to determine the cause of death of a newborn baby whose body was found in a recycling centre in Needham Market after a post-mortem examination proved inconclusive.
A Home Office post-mortem examination was carried out yesterday, with the initial findings proving to be undetermined, pending further investigations.
Officers say that further investigations could take some time.
The tragic death was discovered on Thursday, May 14 when the body was found in waste material at the Sackers Scrap Metal and Waste Recycling centre.
Detectives remain concerned for the mother’s welfare and have urged her to come forward to receive the right support.

Det Ch Sup Bridger said police suspected the baby was brought in through refuse collection rather than deposited at the site and the deliveries had all been from Ipswich and the immediate area.
Further searches have continued on site with the full support and cooperation of the business.
