Aristocrat Constance Marten and Partner Mark Gordon Found Guilty in Tragic Case of Concealed Baby’s Body Discovery in Lidl Bag, Old Bailey

In a heartbreaking case that gripped the nation, Constance Marten, an aristocrat, and her partner Mark Gordon have been found guilty of concealing the birth of their baby, whose body was tragically discovered in a Lidl shopping bag.

This devastating incident unfolded after authorities launched a high-profile search for the missing infant.

Marten, 37, and Gordon, 50, went off the grid with their daughter Victoria to evade authorities, following the removal of their other children into care, the Old Bailey heard.

For over seven weeks, the couple traveled across England, seeking refuge in a tent on the South Downs, all while law enforcement desperately searched for their missing child.

Shortly after their arrest in Brighton last February, Victoria’s decomposed body was found in an allotment shed, wrapped in a pink sheet and concealed within a Lidl bag-for-life.

A jury at the Old Bailey has now found the couple guilty of concealing the birth of their child and perverting the course of justice.

Legal Proceedings and Retrial

Initially facing charges including child cruelty and manslaughter by gross negligence, Marten and Gordon denied all allegations.

Following extensive deliberation by jurors, a retrial has been ordered for further charges.

The prosecution intends to pursue justice as the case continues to unfold.

The Path to Justice

The harrowing journey of this trial began with the discovery of a placenta in a burning car near Bolton, sparking a nationwide search.

As details emerged, including sightings on CCTV and police body-worn camera footage, the tragic fate of Victoria Marten came to light, leaving a community in shock and seeking answers.

This case, with its complex legal proceedings and heartbreaking revelations, serves as a stark reminder of the profound consequences of actions and the pursuit of justice in tragic circumstances.
