German police say a mother who believed her newborn baby girl had died has confessed to stashing her in a freezer -- but an autopsy showed the child was still alive at the time. Police in the town of Horb, in southwestern Germany, say the young woman came to them on Sunday and said she had put the baby in the freezer three or four weeks ago.

They recovered the body and an autopsy showed the child was still alive when she was put in the freezer, police said in a statement Wednesday.

The woman has been taken into custody as the case is investigated.
