Due to the suspicion of a possible homicide, a murder commission from the Hagen police is investigating, the police said on Wednesday.

The girl’s 43-year-old mother was temporarily arrested after the body was found on Tuesday, but was released on Wednesday due to the lack of urgent suspicion.

The exact cause of death is now to be determined.

According to the police, an autopsy has not yet been able to definitively clarify whether the girl was born alive or not.
