Dead baby found at Oprah school

LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - The body of a newborn baby was found in a plastic bag at the Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy for Girls in South Africa, police have confirmed.

According to reports, a 17-year-old gave birth to the baby Wednesday.

No word whether the baby had been murdered or died of natural causes.

A case of concealment of death is being investigated.

The girl, who was a pupil at the school, is being treated at a nearby hospital.

Since opening in 2007, the $40 million school has come under scrutiny. Shortly after the academy opened, a female school staffer was accused of physically and sexually abusing students.
