Sheriff: Newborn found in garbage can was likely stillborn
An autopsy report completed by the Jefferson Parish Sheriff's Office on Thursday suggests that the infant found in a garbage can off Whiskey Lane Wednesday was likely stillborn.

Tangipahoa Parish Sheriff Daniel Edwards said Thursday that the newborn baby found in a garbage container Wednesday may have been a stillborn Caucasian male weighing approximately 3 pounds.


Edwards said the department is especially concerned about the welfare of the mother. The sheriff asks that anyone with information on this case contact the TPSO at (985) 345-6150 or Crime Stoppers of Tangipahoa at (800) 554-5245.
