Police in Copenhagen are appealing for information after the discovery of the body of a small child buried in a recreative area near a block of flats at Brinken in Glostrup. “We can confirm that the skeleton is that of a child,” Søren Uhre from Vestegns Politi told TV2 Nyheder.
Preliminary investigations indicated that the child had been dead for some time. Workers at a building site nearby made the macabre discovery when one of them saw what appeared to be a red jacket or sweater sticking up out of the ground.
Police are asking anyone to come forward who knows about a missing child or who can contribute with any other information. “We still don’t have any idea how long the body has been buried, what sex the child is or how it ended up here,” said Ole Nielsen, who is leading the investigation.
