Oprah Winfrey - Winfrey's School Caught Up In Dead Baby Scandal

OPRAH WINFREY's girls school in South Africa has been rocked by another scandal after the body of a newborn baby was found in a bag belonging to a teenage student.
The 17 year old identified as the dead baby's mother handed over the bag containing the infant to local hospital staff after she was admitted with excessive bleeding earlier this week (beg14Feb11).
The authorities believe the girl gave birth at the Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy for Girls in Johannesburg.
South African police have now launched an investigation, and have not ruled out foul play in the baby's death.
A spokesman for Winfrey's school has refused to comment on the matter because it involves a minor.
The latest scandal comes four years after the school's former dorm matron was accused of molesting students. Virginia Tiny Makopo was eventually acquitted of the charges.
And in March, 2009, four pupils were expelled and another three suspended for alleged "inappropriate behaviour," which reportedly included "sexual misconduct".
