Lee County-- Inmates on a work detail find a baby's body in a plastic bag on a south Georgia creek bank. The inmates made the gruesome discovery yesterday afternoon on the banks of the Muckalee Creek in north Lee County.
The baby's body was found under a bridge on Highway 118, three miles east of Smithville.
The Lee County Sheriff's Office is looking for the mother of the baby and waiting on autopsy results to determine how the newborn died. Chief Deputy Dennis Parker says the black baby girl was full term, it's umbilical cord was still attached. He says the body hadn't been there too long.
"We are desperately asking all residents who may have any information or any knowledge about a black female who had been pregnant, but is no longer pregnant to let the Lee County Sheriff's Office or GBI know," said Chief Deputy Dennis Parker.
The baby's body was sent to the crime lab for an autopsy. "Someone had attempted to throw it into the creek, but missed. It landed on the bank."
The body of a full-term baby girl was dressed, wrapped in a towel and stuffed in a plastic bag.
