A two-month-old baby girl was found floating in a pond by a villager on Tuesday afternoon.
The pond is at Omukoko village, Outapi constituency in Omusati region.
The suspect allegedly used an unknown object or method to kill the baby girl and threw her corpse into the water.
Spokesperson of the Omusati regional police Warrant Officer Lineekela Shikongo confirmed the incident to New Era, saying the police are appealing to members of the public to assist in tracing the culprit so that she can face the law.
“If anyone knows a woman that was heavily pregnant or had a child and she no longer has a child they must come forward and alert the police so that she can be taken in for questioning,” said Shikongo.
The corpse was transported to Okahao police morgue where a post-mortem will be conducted.
