(New York Daily News) A Pennsylvania teen tossed her dead infant in a trashcan shortly after giving birth in a school bathroom stall Tuesday, authorities said.

Cherlie LaFleur, 19, allegedly tried to flush the dead newborn down a toilet at first but resorted to the garbage bin instead, at McCaskey East High School in Lancaster.

Police are still investigating whether the premature child, born 27 to 29 weeks after conception, was stillborn or intentionally killed.
