    What a horror. I understand the panic this young woman must have felt, but why didn't she just go to a hospital or fire station and leave the child? Or even to the bathroom of a fast food place. The baby would have been found and given care.

    She was alone and apparently no one knew, or so it sounds thus far. Surely some of her friends, roommate, etc., suspected.

    We'll have to wait for the full autopsy, etc., to see what caused the infant's death. Oh, what a sad, sad story. A beautiful miracle gone.

    I'm local to this. It was reported that she admitted to putting her hand over his mouth to quiet him after the police told her people reported hearing a baby cry...before that she had said that he was stillborn. It's not something we've ever really had to deal with here...sad, sad situation.

    Thanks for the post, mrsb2001. It's a sad, sad situation for so many. It is always helpful and so special to have someone from the area here on Websleuths. I'm sure there are a lot of folks around your area just shaking their heads and wondering, wondering, wondering. And there is almost always more to the story than meets the eye.

    I just saw this article. It appears that another young woman "disposed" of her newborn and has been convicted of 1st Degree Murder - Life in prison without parole. Hmmm.

    IMO, that's something for Ms. Johnson and her attorney to consider...

    Michigan mom who left baby to die in cold garage sentenced

    MOUNT CLEMENS, Mich. --A 25-year-old Detroit-area mother was formerly sentenced Tuesday in the death of her newborn child, reports CBS Detroit.

    Angela Alexie was sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole, according to the station. The child's body was found at a recycling center in January 2015.
