GBI asks for help

November 9, 2007

Lee County --  The GBI is releasing new information in the case of a dead baby found by prison crews in Lee County two years ago.

Friday they released these actual pictures of the crime scene near the Muckalee Creek Bridge, hoping it will jog someone's memory about the case.  You can see the towel and garbage bags, but what's inside was black newborn baby girl.  Also new, investigators tell us the baby was dressed.

"The baby was dressed in a onesy, so  that tells us that there was some kind of connection with whoever was in the presence of the baby at the time that it was born, because you typically don't see that when it's an unwanted pregnancy," said Agent Trebor Randle of the Americus GBI Office. "Usually the baby is nude and it's wrapped; in this case someone actually took the time to dress the baby."

Shortly after the baby was discovered on September first, 2005, investigators asked for health records from five local health departments looking for names and addresses of pregnant women.  That didn't turn up many leads, now they hope you can help. 

If you know anything about this case, no matter how small the detail, you're asked to call the GBI, Lee County Sheriff's Office, or Smithville Police.
