    Just an FYI the Junior High School is located just accross the street from this location and it is a route that is highly traveled by young kids from the area. Just sad all the way around

    I certainly wish whomever is responsible would have sought other options and/or help from somewhere.......

    Although this tiny little angel gained his/her wings in silence, unbeknownst to the world until today, my heart is broken at the thought of any suffering that may have occurred. I also hope for accountability, because treating a defenseless newborn this way is just plain wrong.

    May this tiny soul now truly have peace. I hope the answers to what happened and why are found. No child should be buried, to be found by accident, like this. There are SO many families longing for a child. It didn't have to be this way.

    Fly High, Little One. Fly High.

    I hadn't thought of that popsicle. They will be able to determine that at autopsy.

    I am emotional today, I guess.

    From what I have been reading in articles there was quite a bit of decomp of the body. This leads me to believe that the infant may have been placed there in the late summer/fall. As cold as this winter has been it would have slowed down decomp process tremendously. This may make it harder to pin down the suspect.

    That being said this is a VERY small town its hard to imagine the individual being able to hide this very well. My thoughts tend to lean toward a young female as opposed to an adult just due to location of the body. I could be wrong though. Curious to see what the autopsy reveals.

    Very sad that a young person would not feel there was another option other than this one I can not imagine why they would feel this is the right thing to do...... blows my mind! Wish they would have found an alternate option and asked someone/anyone for help.

    Fox2 News had much better coverage of this story than Channel 7 did.

    http://www.myfoxdetroit.com/story/25...lipId=10101044

    If you are familiar with the location this is not an "out of the way location" and is very visible from various vantage points. It leads me to wonder if the person responsible were not somehow familiar with the homeowners of where the body was placed.

    COD will determine if the infant was stillborn or not. Hopefully this being a small community someone will come forward with information that helps bring closure for this poor baby.

    I haven't found an update on this case today. Hopefully, once the autopsy is completed, more details will be released about COD, how long the baby had been deceased, etc.
