Horrific moment Alexis Avila, 18, ‘throws baby into dumpster’ as teen is charged with attempted murder in New Mexico

An 18-year-old in New Mexico is facing charges after reportedly admitting to throwing her baby in a dumpster shortly after delivering it. 

A store owner near where it happened shares surveillance video that appears to show her doing it on January 7. 

Joe Imbriale, the owner of Rig Outfitters, said that Hobbs Police asked him to review security footage from his store.

“What are what are we looking for here? I turned around, she goes, ‘we’re looking for somebody that dumped a black garbage bag in the dumpster.’ And I said ‘please do not tell me you was a baby,’ and she grabbed my shoulder and said, ‘yes,'” Imbriale said.

The security video from Imbriale lays out what happened. According to the video, at 2 p.m., a white car pulls up to the dumpster. A woman exits the driver side of the car, opens the back passenger door, grabs a black bag, and throws it into the dumpster.

She then proceeds to leave. 

“The girl just drives up like it’s a piece of trash, reaches in the back of a car, dumps it. And just drives off. No remorse,” Imbriale said.

At 7:42 p.m., the security footage shows a group of people appear to be looking through the dumpster when they come across a black bag. 

A woman can be seen pulling out a baby and begin walking with it. Minutes later, police arrive at the scene. 

“Luckily, we had dumpster divers back there and they pulled it out and they didn’t even know what was in the bag,” Imbriale said.

According to a press release from Hobbs Police, investigators were able to locate the suspected vehicle.

18-year-old Alexis Avila was interviewed and confessed to giving birth to the child at another location, then placing it in the dumpster. Continue Reading
