A woman was arrested on Thursday in France after the lifeless bodies of two babies were found in the freezer of her home in Bédoin, in southeastern France, according to judicial sources.

"The facts are of a criminal nature,"

said the Carpentras prosecutor, Hélène Mourges, specifying that the bodies were found thanks to a person's call to the gendarmerie.

The suspect is a 41-year-old woman who lives in this town located at the foot of Mont Ventoux, where one of the best-known stages of the Tour de France takes place.

Mourges refused to offer "details" about the age or sex of the minors, the link with the detained woman and the reasons.

"The autopsy will tell us more things," added the prosecutor.

The regional newspaper La Provence indicated this Friday that the first indications suggest that

the woman acted alone and that there are two newborns


The clue of whether they are her children would still be confirmed.

The Carpentras prosecutor will give a press conference this Friday in which the development of the investigation will be reported.
