Calgary police not confirming check-on welfare call related to case of deceased newborn

Kass Patterson

There was a lot of police activity around a northwest motel Friday, but CPS are keeping mum on if it’s connected to this week’s discovery of a deceased newborn in Bowness.

CPS were on scene of the Olympia Motel and Lodge for most of the afternoon, seizing several items including a dumpster.

In a release, the force says at this point it’s a check-on welfare call, with no confirmed connection to the newborn found on Christmas Eve.

The police continue to follow up on numerous tips that have come in since the discovery, in a garbage bin on Bowness Road and 79th St. behind a grocery store.

As police try to determine the circumstances around the incident they are also worried about the mother.

There’s also a candlelight vigil planned for Saturday afternoon.

Here’s the full release:

Earlier today, Friday, Dec. 29, 2017, officers responded to a check on welfare at a motel in the 5000 block of 16 Avenue N.W.

This remains a check on welfare and at this time there is no confirmation this call is related to the deceased newborn found on Christmas Eve.

The Homicide Unit continues to follow up on numerous tips that came as a result of the public and media.

An update will be provided when there is information that progresses this investigation.
