A small town was changed forever when the body of a newborn was wrapped in toilet paper and dumped 20 years ago in a bloody toilet in a caravan park.
Residents of Kambalda, near Kalgoorlie, have long wondered who was responsible for throwing away the little baby boy in 1995.
A woman – reportedly the baby's mother, who was 14 at the time of the child's death – was charged with murder this week.
The body of the newborn, named by researchers Rijul – what & # 39; innocent & # 39; means in Indian – was discovered by a cleaner who worked in the Kambalda Caravan Park.
The seven kilo baby was wrapped in toilet paper and put in the toilet.

The small mining town of Kambalda, near Kalgoorlie, was changed forever when the body of a newborn was wrapped in toilet paper and dumped 20 years ago in a bloody toilet in a caravan park
She was extradited from Victoria to Western Australia, where she will face Perth Children's & # 39; s Court on Thursday.
A post-mortem discovered that the white boy had died of suffocation.
The nightmare-like scene has tormented many residents.
Alysha Steer, the cleaner's daughter, remembered finding her mother in tears the day she found the little boy's body.
& # 39; She had gone to work around six in the morning, & # 39; she said The Kalgoorlie Miner.
& # 39; She went to clean the toilets and one was filled with toilet paper. So she put on her gloves and went to dig it up and (ended up) pulling out Rijul. & # 39;

Paul McGeever, the then owner of Kambalda Caravan Park, said he had nightmares after witnessing the eerie scene.
He had investigated after being informed of the incident by the cleaner and was confronted with blood splashing on the walls and on the floor.
A massive search was sparked in which the police went from house to house hoping to find the mother.
A DNA test station has also been set up in the town.
A woman who lived in the city at the time told it ABC everyone had gone down to be tested because they wanted to solve the mystery.
& # 39; It was such a & # 39; n sad story, so everyone wanted to know who did it, & # 39; she said.
She said she was devastated to learn how old the girl was at the time of the incident.
& # 39; I really feel sorry for her, I'm really sorry she didn't have anyone who could turn to whom she could ask for help, & # 39; she said.
& # 39; It would be a frightening experience to go through it yourself. & # 39;
The police will now investigate the circumstances surrounding the conception of the child, given the age of the alleged mother at the time of the incident.
