The corpse of an 18-day-old baby was finally found on Monday outside behind the bathroom in the family home in Si Satchanalai district in Sukhothai province after the mother filed a report claiming the baby had been kidnapped five days ago.

The body of the baby boy, identified as Prachya “Ai-Eaew” Dechomeng, was found by his grandfather in the morning.

The finding marked a turn of events after the mother of the child, Isaraporn “Oil” Foilueang, 22, on Thursday told police at Si Satchanalai police station that her son had been kidnapped.

Deputy police station chief Kittipong Luangyai said the infant's corpse had a cracked skull and there was a blood trail leading outside from the bathroom.

Ms Isaraporn claimed to police that she had found her baby dead more than five days ago. Out of panic, she hid the body inside a wardrobe until Monday before moving it to the bathroom.

Pol Lt Coil KIttipong said the mother Ms Isaraporn had been charged with giving a false statement and police will investigate the case further.

The corpse has been sent to Buddhachinaraj Hospital in Phitsanulok province for a post-mortem examination, he said.
