Andrea Giesbrecht, a Winnipeg woman has been found guilty of disposing of the remains of six infants in a storage locker.
Employees cleaning out the storage locker in a U-Haul facility, Winnipeg called the authorities after making their gruesome discovery.
The remains of six full or near full-term foetuses were found in various stages of decomposition. Andrea was arrested soon after the discovery of the remains.
Andrea’s medical records suggest that she did not see a doctor during any of the six pregnancies. Children’s toys, children and infants’ clothing and blankets were found alongside the remains in the locker.
She had been charged with six counts of concealing the body of a child. Each charge carries a sentence of up to two years in jail.
The judge concluded, “All of her actions lead to one conclusion – that Giesbrecht was aware that these children were likely to have been born alive and she wished to conceal the fact of their birth.”
