Emergency responders made a disturbing discovery early Saturday morning in east Albany. A newborn baby was found dead inside a trash can. Investigators were called to the scene on Collins Street where the remains of the baby girl were found wrapped in a blanket.
Right now it's unclear how long the baby had been dead in that trash can or who put her there. WALB News Ten's Tayleigh Davis has been following the story all day.
Dougherty County District Attorney, Greg Edwards, can't say who exactly discovered the newborn, but investigators have been talking with the mother and witnesses.
A newborn baby girl was found dead in this trash can at 208 Collins Street. Edwards says the baby appeared to be premature. He says the mom is 20 years old now.
"We must deal with our teen pregnancy issue," said Edwards. "This is another one of the ills that's a result of teen pregnancy. There are many instances where women don't get the appropriate pre-natal care or counseling they need."
No one wanted to speak at the home Saturday. Several parents at the Riverfront Park downtown say they're alarmed anytime they hear of a tragedy involving a baby. Brooke Lane has a little girl.
"That makes me really sad because I couldn't even imagine being without my daughter for five minutes," said Lane. "To throw your child away in a trash can is really pathetic."
Members of the child death team with the District Attorney's office will listen to the 911 tapes and continue to investigate the case. The mom could be facing several charges. Right now, the minimum charge would be concealing the death of another. It's a felony offense that could land her in jail for five years.
The medical examiner is performing an autopsy on the baby for further details.
