Rebecca Blackmore - 16-Year-Old Girl Charged With Stabbing Newborn To Death, Leaving Body In Bedroom Closet

Knotts Island, N.C. (The Weekly Vice) - Rebecca Blackmore, a 16-year-old North Carolina girl was jailed after she allegedly delivered a live baby and then stabbed it to death with a knife and hid it in her closet.

According to the Currituck County Sheriff's Office, an investigation began last Friday when Blackmore arrived at Chesapeake General Hospital and told hospital staff that she had just delivered a baby and that it was dead at her home.

Investigators say Currituck deputies drove out to the girl's home and discovered the dead infant in the girl's bedroom closet.

Medical examiners determined that the newborn was alive at birth, but died a few minutes later after enduring multiple stab wounds.

A fire station exists less than a mile from the family's home where Blackmore could have dropped the baby off - no questions asked - under North Carolina's Safe Haven law.

Blackmore was booked into jail on a charge of first-degree murder. She is due back in court on Monday.
