A man did not realise that there was a dead baby in his rented flat in Jalan Lintang Madrasah, Jelutong here, even though there was a strong stench in the premises for the past week.
It was only when his girlfriend went over to his place that they stumbled upon the gruesome discovery - a highly decomposed body of a newborn baby boy.
The infant, wrapped in a black plastic bag, was in a dustbin in the kitchen.
The man, in his 20s, then called the police on Tuesday night to inform them of the discovery.
He told the police that he was renting the unit with three others, including two women, and that the foul smell had been around since June 4.
He said his girlfriend, also in her 20s, could not tolerate the stench, and she took the dustbin out of the house.
It was then that they discovered the body.
He also claimed that the two female tenants, also in their 20s, had left the house since June 4.

About 200 Bigfoot-like footprints have been discovered near Kampung Kepis Baru, Kuala Pilah, causing panic among villagers, reported Harian Metro.
Adnan Pungut, 48, claimed he discovered the footprints when he was clearing rubbish and wood at his rubber estate at 3pm on Saturday.
"I immediately informed the others because I was scared. I told the other villagers and all of us went back to the area.
"We found 200 footprints that were about the same size and tried to follow them," he was quoted as saying.
"Based on the footprints, we can assume that the creature has two legs and weighs more than 100kg," he said.
According to Adnan, further checks by villagers found that the creature could be headed towards a nearby forest.
The report stated that the villagers decided not to pursue the creature as they were afraid.
"We will let the authorities handle it as the animal could be endangered," Adnan said.
