    Was the baby a boy or a girl?
    They can get a sample & use DNA to find out what happened.
    This poor little baby deserves justice & to just leave a baby is SICK.

  2. Melanie Wood says:

    Yeah. What are they doing to solve this?. DNA?. No mention of the sex or race of this baby. Not much to go on to get the peopke responsible. I’ll never understand going through all of the pregnancy to kill it and dump it. Stupid. They will pay.

    I wish there was more information available about this one. Story county is where Iowa State University is located and this infant was found right around the time that would have been spring break. You don’t have to drive very far outside of Ames to be in a rural area. It reminds of Unidentified Baby John Doe 1992 that was found during the holiday break near where the University of Iowa is.

    I also wonder if they happen to have a DNA sample and if not was the infant buried or cremated. More unidentified infants should be run through familial DNA databases.

    With the new technology they have using to solve murders …. Also the didn’t report if that precious baby was male or female and if it was found alive

  5. Lorrie Lane Murphy says:

    Can they still get DNA to see if they can find the parents ?
