PHOENIX (AP) - Police believe it'll be extremely difficult to
find out who placed a dead baby girl in a donation box in
The child was discovered Thursday in McAllen, Texas, as workers
sorted through clothing shipped from Arizona.
Phoenix police spokesman Sgt. Steve Martos says investigators
are waiting to hear from officials in Texas whether the baby was
born alive or stillborn.
The child was apparently wrapped in a towel, placed in a
cardboard box and left in one of nearly 400 donation boxes
scattered across the region between Dec. 8 and Dec. 12.
The collected clothing and household items were sorted in
Phoenix and left for Texas on Monday, arriving two days later.
Martos said Friday that detectives will likely need a tip to
solve the case.
