Newborn Found Dead Aboard Cruise Ship, FBI Opens Investigation

Carnival_Dream.jpeg A newborn baby was found dead aboard Carnival Cruise Line’s The Dream cruise ship when the shop returned to Port Canaveral this past weekend. The FBI has undertaken an investigation as to what led to the child’s death. On Saturday, the FBI’s Evidence Response Team went about the ship to search for clues. According to Special Agent Dave Couvertier, “We received preliminary information of a deceased newborn on the vessel and we are investigating the matter.”

According to reports, an employee aboard the ship found the dead newborn in a guest’s cabin and informed authorities in St. Maarten. The mother, a twenty-year-old passenger, was detained in St. Maarten. However, she has not yet been charged, as the FBI is still obtaining facts and collecting evidence. The newborn’s mother is not from Florida and has not yet returned to the United States.
