Woman Arrested After Newborn Found Hidden In Hotel Toilet

A tourist was arrested after a hotel housekeeper found the body of an infant submerged in the reservoir of a toilet at the Sheraton Waikiki hotel this week, according to KITV.

According to Hawaii News Now, Jeongmi Yoon, a 32-year-old Korean national who was in Hawaii with her husband, is under investigation for the murder of the newborn girl, which Yoon is believed to have carried to full term. It is unknown if the husband knew what took place.

Honolulu police responded to a call at 7 p.m. on Wednesday and arrested the woman around 11:45 p.m., the Honolulu Star-Advertiser reports. She was taken to a hospital where she was guarded.

Detectives have ordered an autopsy, and are considering the case a homicide while they await its results.
