With DNA analysis and genealogy, the TV 2 program Åsted Norway has found the biological mother of a newborn girl found in a trash container in Oslo in 1990.
On Saturday, August 11, 29 years ago, a newborn baby girl was found by chance at Bjølsen in Oslo. The girl was eventually adopted and renamed.
This winter, the TV 2 program Åsted Norway was contacted by an acquaintance of the now 29-year-old woman, who wanted to find out who had placed her in the container.
Experts have been working to find the 29-year-old’s biological mother, among other things by reading the police investigation documents from 1990, as well as using DNA analysis and genealogy.
Last week, the mystery was solved when a DNA test could reveal that a woman living in the Nordic region had given birth to the “container baby” 29 years ago.
– “Throughout all of my years as a murder investigator in Kripos, I have never been so lost on a case that has been resolved in this manner,” says “Åsted Norge” expert and former murder investigator in Kripos, Asbjørn Hansen.
