Who is Arya Singh? Mother of ‘Baby June’ arrested for tossing newborn into Florida inlet in 2018

Authorities arrested a Florida mother on Thursday for allegedly throwing her newborn baby girl into an inlet in 2018 because “she didn’t know what to do with her” after the child was born.

Arya Singh allegedly confessed to the heinous crime after being taken into custody, according to Palm Beach Sheriff officials at a press conference. On June 1, 2018, the baby’s body was discovered floating in the Boynton Beach inlet after she had been disposed of “like a piece of trash,” according to Sheriff Ric Bradshaw.

Arya Singh is accused of killing her newborn baby girl in Florida in 2018.

Detective Brittany Christoffel, who led the investigation, said the mother admitted to putting the baby in the water and told authorities she had no idea she was pregnant until she gave birth.

“She said when the baby was born she wasn’t sure if the baby was alive or dead and that was that,” Christoffel said of the Singh.

The baby was believed to be alive when she was thrown into the ocean, authorities said.

“She didn’t know what to do with her and she still had her with her and she just decided that’s where she was going to dispose of her,” Christoffel additionally said.

Singh, 29, is facing a first-degree murder charge, prosecutors said.

The baby was found by an off-duty Boynton Beach firefighter while he was boating, according to a past WPTV report.

Detective Brittany Christoffel, who spearheaded the investigation, explained the case Thursday.

Christoffel explained that police were able to locate the baby’s father, who agreed to a DNA test and told investigators that a woman he was dating at the time told him she was pregnant, but she took care of it. According to Christoffel, the father assumed that meant an abortion.

Investigators were able to obtain covert DNA from Singh by picking up garbage she discarded, according to Christoffel.

Authorities dubbed the slain newborn “Baby June” because of the date she was discovered. According to the sheriff’s office, the mother never gave her a name after she was born on May 30.
