If the child had received the proper medical attention, it’s believed he would have survived. 

Hiram Village Police Chief Brian Gregory wrote in a report that the trash bag was discovered on the floor of the women’s bathroom tied shut. 

Housekeeping staff collected the bag and took it to the back of the building, where maintenance discovered the contents.

The contents of the bag included bloody paper towels, a dark blue hoodie, a pair of women’s underwear, and a wrapper for a women’s hygiene product.

Gregory said there have been no charges or arrests made and authorities have not released information about the child‘s mother

Hiram College President Dr Lori Varlotta told Cleveland 19: ‘It’s sad. It’s shocking. Words are really inadequate. Really, we’re in shock.’

Varlotta also said that the college’s dorms are locked, so there shouldn’t be anyone in the restrooms who is not a student.
