In the Bronx, Police Investigate the Death of a Newborn Girl


The body of a newborn girl, still bloody and with her umbilical cord attached, was discovered about 8 a.m. yesterday laying facedown on a patch of grass outside a Bronx housing development, the police said.

The police received an anonymous 911 call indicating that a baby was on the ground and may have been thrown from or fallen out of a window outside of the Eastchester Gardens housing complex.

It was unclear last night what caused the babys death, the police said. A spokeswoman for the medical examiners office said an autopsy on the infant, who was pronounced dead at Jacobi Medical Center, was scheduled for today.

The police yesterday were talking with a 14-year-old girl who they believe was the babys mother.

The girl, who lives with her family on the fifth floor of Eastchester Gardens, had been picked up by the police at school and was taken to Jacobi Medical Center for treatment, the police said. As of last night, no arrests had been made in connection with the death.

Neighbors were distraught and angry, and some said they would have taken the baby in themselves.

Ive never seen nothing that hurt me so badly, said Nelly Rosario, 45, a neighbor who said she saw the baby in the grass and at first mistook her for a doll. I will never, as long as I live, forget that sight. It was going to be a beautiful baby.

Investigators yesterday searched the apartment building, including the rooftop, and later inspected a trash can outside a nearby McDonalds on East Gun Hill Road. One officer said that clothing, which was possibly soiled with some afterbirth or a placenta, was found in the trash can.

Yesterday morning, a woman, who neighbors said is the mother of the 14-year-old girl being questioned, was escorted by the police from her apartment. Neighbors said four additional children live in the familys apartment.

A spokeswoman for the Administration for Childrens Services said she could not comment on whether the family had any history with the agency, but said that an investigation would be conducted.

A community affairs officer at the scene said: It brought me to tears when I walked into the hospital and saw her. The best word is heartbreaking. It just doesnt make sense.

Yeah, guess who was there when they brought mom in?

I won't get into details, but it's the first time I've actually felt homocidal.

This goes so beyond anything that any sort of upbringing can do to someone that it simply has to be that she was born with a bad brain. My view is that "Cruel and Unusual Punishment" shouldn't apply here. I think she should be euthanized. At the very least she needs a hysterectomy to ensure that she can have no more babies to throw out windows.

My bet: she'll be out of prison by age 18.

My only consolation is that if there's a hell, it'll be extra hot for her. angry
