LAS VEGAS (AP) — Las Vegas police say a newborn baby has been found dead in a trash bin behind a Las Vegas casino.
The baby was found on Monday afternoon near the Planet Hollywood casino on the Las Vegas Strip.
Homicide detectives are investigating.
It’s believed the baby was abandoned, but an investigation by homicide detectives is continuing.
There’s been no word on the newborn’s gender or exact age.
Under Nevada’s “Safe Haven” law, parents can leave a baby at a fire station, hospital or police station with no questions asked.
