Officials describe the surroundings as rural and agricultural, with open fields and large, fenced-in horse farms. Cops say the location is about three miles from a Six Flags
Great Adventure Theme Park, located just off Interstate I-195.
Police theorize that someone may have been traveling along the interstate, looking for a desolate spot in which to discard the child's body.
Cops say that person left the body about 50 feet into the densely-wooded area.
But several indicators lead police to believe the person responsible was not very familiar with the area
Investigators say if the suspect had gone a mere 50 feet further into the woods, he or she would have seen a swampy, marshy area -- a far better place to dump a body, because it would have been immersed in water, destroying any remaining evidence.
The body was found in 2005, but based on police estimates, the child's remains could have been at the site for a year or more.
