A judicial commission given the job of exhuming the remains of baby girl, as part of the investigation into alleged stealing of babies, opened the site where the baby’s remains was supposed to be, at an old cemetery in Ronda, Málaga. A court in Málaga had authorised the exhumation to carry out DNA testing to confirm identity, but the tomb was empty. Diario Sur reports the mother said there was nothing there ‘Not even a blanket or clothes, nothing at all, just an empty box with a cross on top’. The parents saw the child being born alive, but they were told later that she had died. The death is not recorded in the Registro Civil.
