    IL - Body of newborn found in Grayslake landfill, 16 Aug 2005

    A baby boy who remains unidentified five weeks after he was discovered dead in a Grayslake landfill was laid to rest Friday during an emotional ceremony attended by dozens of mourners.

    No one at the graveside service knew the newborn infant, but the brown-haired, brown-eyed boy -- and his lonely death -- still had touched their lives.

    The baby -- so young he was still attached to his umbilical cord -- was found dead Aug. 16 amid tons of garbage at the Countryside Landfill.

    Just when I think that I have seen the most depraved things a human can do to another human, somebody posts a new story...........

    Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?

    Infant boy not alone in death

    Baby Boy Doe was buried in a white casket barely as big as the flower arrangement Friday, as dozens of strangers paid their respects during a graveside service.

    Some came from miles away, touched by the story of an infant found dead in a Grayslake landfill, a boy who was born alive but apparently tossed in the trash within a day of birth.

    Poor little guy. I think the safe haven law needs to be spotlighted. I don't know whether it's a good idea to have posters in schools - but that would be better than this.

    I think at least leaflets could be placed beside home pregnancy tests in drugstores.
    Above is my opinion only

    I'd rather see condoms being handed out in schools. . .

    I think both needs to happen. They make these laws, but so many don't know about them. Kids aren't aware of what laws are passed. Neither are a lot of people. Unless they advertise them in the area where kids are and people who are most likely to commit this crime- the laws are useless.
    I have told both my kids about the safe haven law. Hopefully, if they ever come across someone with a hidden pregnancy- they will remember. But all kids need to be made aware of it.

    Me too, Jeana, but once you find yourself pregnant it's too late for that. But, admittedly, I am unfairly assuming that the baby's mother was only a baby herself.

    I just think anything is better than the outcome of this story.......
