Police arrested 19-year-old Alexee Trevizo, who allegedly hid her dead newborn son in a trash bag, Law & Crime reported. 

The teen reportedly entered a hospital in New Mexico with complaints of back pain. When nurses asked her if she was pregnant Trevizo said she was not sexually active, reports note. A nurse told responding officers that Trevizo had gone off to the bathroom for

“20 minutes and wouldn’t open the door.”

Staff members who expressed concerns about the teen eventually got her to unlock the door only to find what one nurse described as

“blood and sh– everywhere.”

According to staff, Trevizo had already been trying to clean up the blood. Initially, staff thought Trevizo had done self-harm and she was rushed to a hospital room for examination. Moments later a custodian found the newborn tied up in a bag in the trash can.

She reportedly gave birth to a


baby boy, nurses revealed. The 19-year-old was confronted by police at the hospital. She later confessed that she was scared and that the baby was not crying.

She now faces charges of first-degree murder and tampering with evidence, reports state.
