HOUSTON (AP) - Houston police say the body of a baby girl with
the umbilical cord still attached was found in a box near a trash
bin at a gated apartment complex.
Houston police Sgt. Will Gonzales says a maintenance worker
found the box Tuesday morning near an overflowing trash bin.
Gonzales says the worker didn't look in the box, but placed it
in a golf cart to move it to another bin. When the box fell off the
cart, the body fell out.
Gonzales believes the child was born Monday night or early
He tells the Houston Chronicle that police didn't see any
visible signs of trauma to her body.
Investigators at the Harris County Institute of Forensic
Sciences will conduct an autopsy Wednesday.
