An autopsy performed on Monday determined that a deceased infant found in the trash on Friday at the CR&R Environmental Services facility at 1706 Goetz Rd. in Perris was alive at the time of being discarded.
“Earlier today, an autopsy was performed and it was determined that the infant was alive at birth and not a stillbirth,” Sergeant Michael Hamilton said on Monday. “We are asking the public’s help in helping identify the mother of the infant.”
Deputies are also searching for the owner of a black backpack found at the scene.
Anyone with information about this case is urged to contact Investigator Magana at 951-955-2777.
Under the Safely Surrendered Baby Law, also known as the Safe Haven Law or Newborn Abandonment Law, a person may surrender their baby confidentially to any designated fire station or emergency room without fear of arrest or prosecution for abandonment.
The law’s intent is to save the lives of newborn infants at risk of abandonment by encouraging parents or persons with lawful custody to safely surrender the infant within 72 hours of birth, with no questions asked. For more information about the Safely Surrendered Baby Law, click here.
