Officers had been searching for the baby after the mother went to South Fulton Medical Center complaining she didn’t feel well. Staff at the hospital determined the woman had recently given birth.
Police questioned the woman and the baby’s father, but they initially refused to cooperate with investigators.
Eventually, the mother told police the baby was stillborn and she buried it at the San Lucia Apartments in the Morosgo Court area. She lead police to the dumpster at the apartment complex where officers found the baby’s body.
Georgia has a safe haven law that allows mothers to leave a baby, up to 7 days old, with an employee of any medical facility including any hospital, institutional infirmary, health center or birthing center in Georgia without penalty.
