According to St. Maarten Island Time.com, a St. Maarten public prosecutor has found no reason to believe that a crime had been committed in the case of the dead newborn found on the Carnival Dream cruise ship last Wednesday morning.
St. Maarten authorites performed an autopsy on the newborn, which has not been released to the public, and came to a conclusion that the newborn died sometime between Miami and St. Maarten out of Dutch jurisdiction. He also added that the ship does not fly under a Dutch flag.
The St. Maarten official also said that the 20-year-old American mother claimed that she did not know that she was pregnant before she gave birth.
Tampa FBI Special Agent Dave Couvertier stated that the FBI Evidence Response team was activated Saturday when the shp returned to Port Canaveral. The FBI is still working on obtaining facts and specific details.
