I didn't know where to put this article so decided on here. Of course it's probably a double post.
Police are searching in New Jersey and Pennsylvania garbage dumps for the body of a baby boy delivered at Jersey City's Christ Hospital which was apparently thrown out with the trash, authorities said today.
"This has become a search and recovery," Hudson County Prosecutor Edward DeFazio said this afternoon.
Hospital officials say the baby was stillborn when delivered by a Jersey City woman, Kalynn Moore, 26, on Dec. 21 and was brought to the hospital morgue. The family disputes the claim, saying that the baby was alive when delivered and declared dead 20 minutes later.
When a funeral home representative went to the morgue to pick up the body on Jan. 2, the baby could not be found, DeFazio said.
That's when police became involved and the investigation determined that the baby's body was likely discarded in trash and the trash was already gone. Jersey City Police and law enforcement officials in Pennsylvania are searching for the body in garbage dumps. Dogs from the Bergen County Prosecutor's Office are assisting, DeFazio said.
