2013 05 18
A 30-year-old Riverview woman Christine Margaret Wood has been charged in connection with the discovery of the body of a newborn baby boy found on Taylor Road near Monteagle, N.B. in 2009.
On May 18, 2013, Wood appeared via telephone remand in Provincial Court and was charged with concealing the body of a child. The police allege that the woman disposed of the dead body of her child with the intent to conceal the fact that she had given birth to him. The police were led to Wood via information received over the course of the investigation. She was arrested in Hillsborough on May 17 without incident.
The newborn’s body was discovered in a snow bank on Taylor Road on April 4, 2009. Riverview RCMP and the RCMP’s Major Crime Unit have been investigating to try to determine the identity of the child and the circumstances surrounding his death. The baby is legally known as Baby Boy Doe but became known as Baby Taylor in the weeks following the discovery of his body based on the name of the road where he was found.
Christine Margaret Wood was remanded in custody and is scheduled to appear in Moncton Provincial Court on May 21, 2013 at 1:30 p.m. for a bail hearing.
