Police Don't Know Why Someone Buried a Dead Baby in the Forest
LAPD detectives are investigating a tip they got this week that someone had buried a dead baby in the Angeles National Forest way back in 2010.
The death was never reported until now. Detectives from the abused child section know that the baby died while in the care of its parents, but they don't know how. It was 6 weeks old at the time of its death. They were able to find the body buried in a wooded area and the coroner's office is trying to figure out how the baby died.
Anyone with information is urged to call 1-877-LAPD-24-7 (1-877-527-3247).
