Body Of Newborn Found In Ventura County Strawberry Field

Posted on Monday, May 21, 2012 3:47pm

Authorities are investigating the death of a newborn baby, whose body was found in a strawberry field outside of Oxnard.

The body was discovered by a worker at the edge of a field off of Central Avenue at around 9:30 this morning. Ventura County Sheriff’s detectives aren’t saying anything about the cause of death, or how long they think the baby was in the field.

Because the cause still hasn’t been determined, they are treating the death as suspicious.
