  • Andrea Giesbrecht was found guilty of concealing the decomposing remains of her six infants
  • The bodies were discovered in a  storage locker that she rented at U-Haul storage facility 
  • Through DNA evidence, it was proven that she’s the mother of the deceased infants
  • Giesbrecht’s sentencing date has yet to be announced

Andrea Giesbrecht, also known as Andrea Naworynski, was found guilty by a Canadian judge of six counts of concealing the decomposing remains of her six infants in a storage locker and each charge carries a maximum penalty of two years in jail.

She was arrested by Winnipeg’s local police in the Maples neighborhood in October 2014 as soon as it was confirmed that she was the one who rented the storage locker where police found the corpses.

According to reports, the employees of  U-Haul storage facility conducted an inspection of the storage locker of Giesbrecht at their facility located at the corner of McPhillips Street and Elgin Avenue because of the foul smell coming from it.

The employees were left in shock after they discovered the corpses of the babies in various stages of decomposition inside the locker.

U-Haul immediately called the authorities to report their discovery and to have them remove the remains of the babies.

Through DNA evidence, it was proven that Giesbrecht is the mother of the deceased infants.

Giesbrecht’s defense lawyers argued that their client was not concealing the remains of the infants, but saving them.

However, provincial court Judge Murray Thompson said that all the evidence pointed out that there’s no doubt that Giesbrecht concealed her pregnancies and the resulting delivery of the six infants.

BBC News quoted him as saying: “There is no evidence of complication in these pregnancies. All of her actions lead to one conclusion – that Giesbrecht was aware that these children were likely to have been born alive and she wished to conceal the fact of their birth.”

Giesbrecht’s sentencing date has yet to be announced.
