Under-aged or not, the young lady who showed up at the school nurse’s office with a dead baby in a bag at Oprah’s school in South Africa has some explaining to do.
Police in Johannesburg are investigating whether to file charges after a newborn baby was found dead at Oprah Winfrey’s elite South African high school.
In a statement Monday, the Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy said it was awaiting the outcome of the police investigation into the birth last week, and in the meantime, it was providing counseling for students.
Last Friday, authorities say a 17-year-old student gave birth at the school and was taken to the hospital after she started bleeding excessively.
The baby was found in a plastic bag filled with bloodied clothes.
Officials at the school said they were respecting and protecting the pupil’s privacy and not releasing her name.
Where are her parents in all this?
