According to the warrants from the North Myrtle Beach Police Department, Alyssa Anne Dayvault  disposed of a male newborn’s body around Dec. 2 or 3 in the area of 98 S. Oak St. in North Myrtle Beach.

“The defendant was admitted to Grand Strand Regional Hospital on 12/5/2018 for complaints of heavy vaginal bleeding and during treatment she ‘delivered’ a placenta and umbilical cord consistent with a full term pregnancy, but no child was ‘delivered.’ Police were contacted and conducted a recorded post-Miranda interview, during which the defendant admitted that she birthed a newborn male child at her residence in North Myrtle Beach,” state the warrants. “The defendant stated that the child was born alive and took multiple gasping breaths after having been born. The defendant further stated that she failed to secure medical treatment and did not personally take action to attempt to preserve/save the infant’s life. The defendant then disposed of the child’s body in a waste receptacle at her residence in NMB without seeking help or notifying authorities.”

Dayvault is charged with murder/homicide by child abuse and graves/destruction, desecrations or removal of human remains in this case.

She is also accused of disposing of a female newborn’s body sometime between Nov. 4-23, 2017 in the area of 1100 David St. in the City of North Myrtle Beach, according to warrants.
“Police recorded a post-Miranda interview pursuant to a separate investigation, during which the defendant admitted that she birthed a newborn female child at her residence in North Myrtle Beach.”

“The defendant then disposed of the child’s body in a public waste receptacle at her apartment in NMB without seeking help or notifying authorities,” the warrants say. “During the course of the investigation police obtained medical records which indicated that on 11/4/2017 the defendant was in her 3rd trimester of a pregnancy and that the fetus had a healthy heart tone.”
