Ohio police are investigating after the body of a newborn baby girl was found in a trash can in the bathroom of a student dorm in the hall on the Hiram College on Friday morning, police say.

The dorm was on lockdown after a baby was found in a garbage can at 10:48 a.m. by a school maintenance worker, who was in contact with the Hiram Village Police department immediately, according to police chief Brian Gregory.

“We are in a state of shock. We are in mourning, as a campus community. We are a small community, very friendly and attentive, so this has surprised us, and we will do everything we can to restore a sense of health and well well-being of our students, and our faculty and staff members of the school’s president, Lori Varlotta, told WEWS-TV. “We have a clinical psychologist on the employees who are meeting with students who want to have personal assistance. We have had a very active chaplain, is providing ministerial services.

The cause of death is not known at this time, and Hiram police department has launched an investigation, with the assistance of the state Bureau of Criminal investigation.

The Portage County Coroner, Dr. Dean DePerro, told Fox 8. it’s unclear how long the newborn — who was either a full term or nearly full term, was in the bathroom. He says that it is not known whether the baby was delivered alive or stillborn.

“The death of a child is always difficult,” said Dr. DePerro, told the outlet. “It has never been easier.”

DePerro said that the mother was identified late Friday night, where she was reportedly taken to a local hospital for treatment. School officials had urged the mother to seek medical treatment in search earlier in the day, according to WEWS-TV.

“They need to feel comfortable to come forward to seek medical attention and to stand out to everyone else in the school with the help of counseling — to make sure they are on the right place and in a very timely manner,” Varlotta told the station.

The baby’s remains were taken to the Cuyahoga County Medical Examiner for a full autopsy.

“I know that myself and the other mums will have now to be sure that the people know that there are resources,” Ferraby told WOIO. “I’d be happy to talk to her, pray with her to see if she is still in need of help. “She’s probably afraid to tell anyone. This is a terrible place to be.”
