It was a disturbing find on January 29 as a placenta was discovered on the east side of the Rio Grande near La Llorona Park, New Mexico. Luckily, a nearby genetic testing center was able to perform comprehensive testing to reveal the sex and ethnicity of the placenta. By utilizing DNA from the mother and the placenta, DNA specialists were able to reveal the baby is a male of African or African-American ethnicity. The discovery is a starting point in the investigation, but as of now, mother and child are still missing.
It’s not illegal to give birth outside of a hospital; however, there is still reason to think that there could have been foul play involved. It’s very unclear as there were no remains found that would prove the baby was dumped, nor where there any discoveries when a cadaver dog was sent to search the scene.
The Las Cruces police department is still searching and is concerned for the welfare of the child and mother. Giving birth outside of the hospital can create complications for both child and mother, giving reason to think that both could be in potential danger.
The Las Cruces police department is asking the public for its assistance: “Anyone with information that can help identify the birth-mother is asked to call Las Cruces Police detectives at (575) 524-4222. Those who can provide information and wish to remain anonymous can call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477) or send a tip via text message to LCTIPS (528477).”
