    A newborn girl died after she was abandoned in freezing temperatures on the steps of a Northeast home, leaving police on Monday to try to identify her and find out who deserted her.

    The discovery of the infant, who Metropolitan Police Department officials said was no more than a week old, sparked outrage and grief among residents in the 3000 block of Channing Street, where the girl was found.

    “It’s the only thing on our minds,” said 31-year-old teacher Ian Milne, on whose front steps the girl was found. Mr. Milne did not know the child or who she belonged to.

    Mr. Milne’s neighbor, Emmanuel Dugger, 35, discovered the infant close to midnight Sunday, wrapped only in a red-and-white-striped towel and laying on the steps leading into his yard. She was icy cold to the touch, Mr. Dugger said, and he suspects she was outdoors much longer than the 15 minutes it took for him to walk to the store and back.

    Heartbreaking. May her soul rest in peace. I pray justice is brought to the one who abandoned her and ended her precious, short life. A fire station/ police station/ or hospital would have been a much better choice.
