Dead Baby Found In Bathroom Prompts Hunts For Suspects

HENDERSONVILLE, N.C. (CBS/AP) — Authorities say a newborn girl was found dead in a bathroom stall at a North Carolina grocery store.

An employee at a Bi-Lo in Hendersonville called police around 9 p.m. Sunday to say the infant’s body was found wrapped in a blanket in the women’s bathroom. Police say the baby girl appears to be only a day or two old and the blanket has words in Spanish that mean “my baptism.”

Investigators are reviewing surveillance tapes to see if they can find who brought the child into the store. An autopsy has been ordered on the baby.

A report by CNN claims surveillance showed a woman drag a large bag into the bathroom and leave wearing different clothing and carrying the bag, which police observed as looking “significantly lighter.”

Hendersonville police said two “individuals of interest” had been identified but no names have been released.
