    Woman, 19, ordered to tell where baby is
    Posted: May 15, 2010

    Marion County juvenile court Judge Marilyn Moores on Friday ordered a 19-year-old woman to disclose the location of a baby she gave birth to Monday.

    Tasha B. Miller gave birth to a girl without medical assistance at her Near-Northside apartment, according to juvenile court documents. Miller came to Methodist Hospital in need of treatment Wednesday for complications from the birth, the documents said.

    Miller initially told authorities she had taken the baby to a safe place but later gave conflicting accounts of where the child was.

    Metro Police Searching For Missing Newborn
    5/14/2010

    Police are searching for a newborn baby girl whose mother doesn't remember where she left her.

    19 year-old Tasha Miller went to the hospital complaining of pains when the staff noticed she had had a baby. When she said she didn't know where the baby was, the staff notified police and Child Protective Services.

    Miller gave police conflicting stories as to what happened, but she said she had the baby on May 10th in her apartment on 600 East 11th St. and the baby appeared to be unresponsive. Assuming the child had died, she wrapped her in a pink blanket, put her in a black shoe box and into a Victoria's Secret bag. Then, she put the baby in a dumpster.

    IMPD Lt. Jeff Duhamell says police have searched the dumpster and Miller's apartment with no success. They also searched a dump site in Clinton, Indiana where the dumpster may have been emptied but they didn't find anything.

    This is not sounding good.
    It appears to be a mom who 'threw away' her baby.
    That makes me sad and mad.
    Sad, there are so many safe places you can drop off a newborn
    and the baby will be taken care of.
    Sad, that the baby is probably already gone from this world.

    Mad, why, why do it?
    Just give the baby up for adoption? So many people want to adopt.

    To me, it does not seem long that the complete truth will out.

    Sadly.

    Oh no! Not again! Do people know about the safe havens? Are there posters in high schools to reach these kids? What can we do?

    Tasha Miller lives in the 600 block of east 11th street. According to court papers, she says she hid her pregnancy up until she gave birth on May 10th. She told doctors she delivered the baby girl in her bedroom.


    But she has different stories about what she did with the baby after the delivery. She says she took the baby to a safe haven location, she also says she left the baby on the side of an interstate, or in a dumpster near her apartment. Miller says she wrapped the baby in pink fabric, had put her in a shoe box, and then in a Victoria Secret bag.

    Detectives searched Miller's apartment and found a bloody mattress, scissors, and a hunting knife. The mother says she knows who the baby's father is, but doesn't know where he is living. She also says she believes the baby is dead.

    She remains at Methodist Hospital.

    Miller originally told police that she had given birth to a girl by herself at her home in the 600 block of East 11th Street on Monday morning, but later said she was assisted by a friend who is a midwife, police said.After the baby was born, Miller said she was going to take the infant to a Safe Haven location, but said she couldn't find one and couldn't remember if she left the baby on the side of an interstate, put the infant on the porch of a home or threw the infant out of car window.Investigators said Miller then changed her story and said that she had, in fact, returned to her apartment, and then she realized the baby was not moving, police said.She told police she put the baby in a shoe box, put the box in a bag and put the bag in her apartment's outdoor trash bin.Police later searched that bin, and several others in the area, but did not find anything. No remains were found in the Clinton County landfill, where trash from the Dumpster was taken."We have no specific idea where this infant may be," said Indianapolis police Lt. Jeff Duhamell. "The last thing we knew, she said she put it in a shoebox, placed it in a Victoria's Secret bag and threw it in the Dumpster."Miller tested positive for marijuana at the hospital. She told police she didn't know she was pregnant until five or six months into the pregnancy, and that she hadn't told anyone.Police think there is a possibility that the baby is still alive and that they are pursuing all leads and information.

    I've never seen a case that varied from the rule that if the last person who sees a missing person changes his or her story, that person is responsible.

    Police search for missing newborn

    Court Records show Miller refused to submit to a urine test for drugs. But tests from the 19-year-old's urine samples taken during surgery showed traces of marijuana in her system.

    Doctors had to perform vaginal surgery due to injuries she sustained during the delivery, according to court records.

    Judge Marilyn Moores hopes someone from the public can help locate the newborn baby girl. Moores is mainly concerned because in all of her story telling Moores says the mother has indicated that the baby may still be alive.

    Missing persons officers are out actively searching for the baby and urge anyone with information to call Crime Stoppers at 262-TIPS or 911.

    The case file is being called Missing Babygirl Miller.

    I don't know why I opened this thread. I guess, hoping in vain that it wouldn't be like so many countless others.

    Ugh.

    You were right to open this thread no matter how it turns out, amandab. This baby girl needs to be acknowledged. Thank you.

    ETA Just realized what you meant by "opened," amandab. I thought you meant you started it. (Thank you for starting the thread, BeanE.)

    Yes, we have them up in our school. Our health dept sends them for free every year, and anyone can order more if they want. What a simple thing to do to possibly save a life!!

    I think a lot of schools / parents would be opposed to such posters, unfortunately. Kind of like being opposed to teaching anything other than abstinence. Having posters about a safe haven "could encourage kids to get pregnant, knowing they have somewhere to dump the baby". Ugh. Knowledge of such things could save many babies lives, IMO.

    Hoping that there is some way "Baby Girl" Miller is alive somewhere, and found soon.
