The woman accused of killing her eight-day old baby told investigators that she killed her baby and that she didn’t want to burden her family.
In a report released today, Vasquez told investigators that she left her mother’s house in the 5800 block of Congress Street in Gulf Breeze Thursday because she was a burden. She fled to a wooded area near the house.
Vasquez said that she held her baby Madison Florez “really tight” to comfort the newborn child.
