Baby Found In Shopping Bag Was Born Alive
Death penalty case. I don’t care what anyone thinks.
Via ABC News:
A dead baby found in a teenage girl’s shopping bag at a lingerie store was born alive and then asphyxiated, police said Friday, as the macabre discovery turned toward a possible homicide case.
Police believe 17-year-old Tiana Rodriguez gave birth to the baby at a friend’s house and that the infant was later asphyxiated. The city medical examiner’s office said an autopsy was inconclusive, and more tests were needed.
Little was immediately clear about the circumstances of Rodriguez’ pregnancy and the baby’s death. Some neighbors told reporters they hadn’t realized she was carrying a child.
Rodriguez remained hospitalized Friday after the find a day earlier, and a woman who answered the phone at a possible home number for her said she knew nothing about the matter. A message left at another possible number for Rodriguez wasn’t immediately returned.
