Hispanic crime: A pregnant woman who was beaten to death by her boyfriend who assaulted her with a baseball bat has died, but not before giving birth to a baby girl
Police say that 21-year-old Paola Delgado-Polanco, who was originally from Mexico, was pronounced dead after being violently assaulted at her trailer park home in Delaware. Polanco was found by paramedics and died just hours later from her injuries. Before she died, she gave birth to a baby girl who was born three months premature. The newborn is listed in critical but stable condition at Christiana Hospital in Newark, Delaware. Police were called to the home in the Waterford Trailer Park after paramedics found the woman unconscious inside the home. Investigators claim Paula's injuries were caused by 24-year-old Fernando Flores who assaulted her. Flores has been arrested and charged with assault, although the charges have now been elevated to manslaughter. He is now in the Howard R. Young Correctional Institution awaiting trial.
