The mother of the dead 6-month-old daughter was identified by authorities using DNA evidence after she was discovered on Mother’s Day weekend in a wooded area in the 4000 block of Pittman Road. On Saturday, May 13, just before 8 o’clock in the evening, Kansas City, Missouri, police were sent to a wooded area behind a vacant lot to look into a suspected dead body.
A grandmother phoned the police on May 15 to let them know she thought the newborn could be her 6-month-old granddaughter after seeing news reports that a deceased baby had been discovered in the woods close to the 10000 block of East 38th Terrace. According to a search-warrant application for surveillance video submitted on May 22 by a KCPD detective, DNA testing three days later established the woman’s daughter was the dead baby’s mother.
The 25-year-old daughter of the lady who dialed 911 informed her via Facebook Messenger on May 7 that the infant girl had passed away in her sleep on May 4. The mother informed yet another witness that the 6-month-old girl had passed away in her sleep on May 4 and had also messaged at least one other person about the kid’s passing.
The grandma was worried since no funeral plans had been made for the baby and the mother had declined to reveal more details about the 6-month-old’s passing.
