Bodycam video reveals shocking moment police confront teen over dead baby found in hospital trash can. Now she's charged with first-degree murder.

Bodycam video shows the harrowing moment police confront a New Mexico teen over the discovery of her baby that was found dead in a hospital trash can. Authorities suspect the teen of killing her newborn baby in a hospital bathroom, and she has since been charged with murder.

Alexee Trevizo, 19, was charged last week with willful and deliberate first-degree murder and tampering with evidence. The charges stem from the tragic death of the young woman's newborn baby that was found lifeless in a hospital trash can.

On Jan. 27, Trevizo was taken to the Artesia General Hospital Emergency Room after she complained of lower back pain.

The teen told medical professionals that she was not pregnant. The hospital staff suspected the teen of being pregnant and ran some tests. The teen allegedly denied that she had sex; however, tests determined that Trevizo was pregnant.

Trevizo allegedly locked herself in a hospital bathroom for approximately 20 minutes. When Trevizo finally opened the door, hospital staff found "blood and s**t everywhere," according to an unnamed doctor interviewed by police as seen in bodycam video taken by the Artesia Police Department.

A hospital custodian was cleaning the bathroom and noticed the trash bag was heavy. She purportedly looked inside and found the body of a dead baby.

According to police, the teen delivered the baby while in the restroom and then placed the newborn in a garbage bag.

"She put the baby in the trash can and then another clean liner over the top of it,” the doctor told police.

“The baby is dead," the doctor said. "She killed the kid.”

“She had it in the bathroom is what happened and then whatever she did, I don’t know — she’s going to lie," he continued. "She wouldn’t tell us she’s pregnant, she’s been lying the whole time."

The shocking police bodycam footage shows the moment that an officer informs Trevizo and her mother that a full-term newborn was found dead in a trash can.

Trevizo's mother is shocked to learn that her daughter was 9 months pregnant.

“Lexee, I told you about this,” her mother exclaimed. “I just asked you, baby, to tell me the truth.”

The mother scolds her daughter, “Lexee, have you watched the news about what the girls do to their babies and they go to jail?”

Alexee claimed that the baby didn't cry when it was born.

“I’m sorry. It came out of me and I didn’t know what to do,” she pleaded.

However, the Office of the Medical Investigator of New Mexico performed an autopsy of the newborn and determined the manner of death to be a homicide.

Trevizo's attorney, Gary Mitchell, proclaimed that his client has no criminal record and the murder charge is too harsh.

“I have serious problems with the charge in this case which is first-degree murder. You can bet your life we’re going to defend this tenaciously,” Mitchell declared.

Trevizo has pleaded not guilty to the charges against her.
