Body Of Baby Found In Trash

BLYTHE TOWNSHIP — Police have charged a woman with abuse of corpse and concealing the death of a baby girl.

Tara Paltanavage, 22, is locked up in the Schuylkill County prison.

The coroner tells us the body of a newborn was found in the trash early Tuesday morning along Winfield Drive near Middleport.

State police spent several hours digging through the trash looking for evidence.

At this point, it’s not clear how the baby girl died.

“I think it’s a horrible thing. How could you do something to that? It’s such a precious thing you know, being so little,” said neighbor Brittany Burg.

“So many people who want to adopt babies and stuff, to throw it away don’t make sense,” added Frances Nazar.

Paltanavage is now locked up in Schuylkill County on $250,000 bail.

An autopsy on the baby girl is scheduled for Wednesday.
