The Kern County Sheriff’s Office says they have identified a man found dead in the same Southwest Bakersfield home where a baby was found dead.
Police responded to the 5200 Block of Shining Crag Ave yesterday for reports of a possible suicide. They found 47-year-old Jagsir Singh inside the home. Singh is the grandfather of a newborn baby who police say, was killed just hours after the infant’s birth. Authorities have charged 43-year-old Beant Kaur Dhillon with the crime. Court documents say Dhillion found her 15-year-old daughter had just given birth inside the home’s bathroom. Dhillion, authorities say, took the baby, drowned the baby and had the baby buried in the home’s backyard to prevent “family shame.” Bakshinderpal Singh Mann is wanted in connection with the case. He is still at large.
