WINNIPEG — The remains of six fetuses found in a Winnipeg U-Haul storage locker last October could date back as far as 10 years, the suspect's lawyer says.
Greg Brodsky represents Andrea Giesbrecht, who is in custody charged with six counts of concealing human remains.
Brodsky said he based his theory on dated documentation found with the remains.
"I would like the evidence to disprove it if there is any, because I don't think there is any," he said Friday.
An expected bail hearing was adjourned again after Brodsky said he has yet to receive a full autopsy report. Brodsky previously lobbied, unsuccessfully, to be allowed to hire an independent pathologist to observe the autopsies.
"If I had a pathologist there to observe the autopsies we wouldn't be waiting around like this," he said.
Brodsky said the autopsy report will include X-ray results showing whether anything was done to interfere with a proper delivery.
"My theory is they were stillborn," Brodsky said. "There was no proof of life after delivery.
"If I am proved correct, we can go ahead (with a bail hearing)," he said. "If I am not proved correct then I will have to reassess.”
