South Wales Police is continuing to investigate the discovery of the bodies of two babies. The babies were discovered at an address in Wildmill, Bridgend, on the evening of Saturday, November 26.
Two men, aged 37 and 47, and a 29-year-old woman, who are currently in police custody for concealing the birth of child, have had a further 36 hour extension to their detention which was granted at Merthyr Magistrates Court this morning.
Police are continuing to question the suspects and are awaiting results of post mortems and forensic examinations, which are taking place today, to determine the causes of the deaths.
Detective Superintendent Darren George, from South Wales Police, said:
“Our thoughts go out to anyone affected by this traumatic incident. I would also like to thank the local community for their patience, given the significant police activity in the area over the past 36 hours.
“In addition, I want to remind members of the public to demonstrate responsibility when sharing information through social media and other means. Some information has been both upsetting for people connected to the incident and could compromise the investigation.
“The investigation is continuing and I would urge anyone with information concerning this incident, and who has not already spoken to the police, to get in touch with us via https://bit.ly/SWPProvideInfo, 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111, quoting reference 2200399650.”
