A dead ‘underdeveloped’ newborn was found face down in a creek, police say.
According to official information, the child’s umbilical cord and placenta were still attached when the shock was discovered.
On Tuesday, the Catoosa County Sherif’s office said in a news release that an “underdeveloped” Georgia baby was found at the edge of a local creek.
It was a terrifying discovery just across the Tennessee state line and an hour and a half outside of Atlanta, Georgia.
An excerpt of the local police statement read: “At approximately 1:00 p.m. on Tuesday, September 27, Catoosa County deputies were arrested over a lifeless, underdeveloped infant who was lying face down on the edge of South Chickamauga Creek Canoe launch from Graysville called Umbilical cord and placenta still attached.
“Investigators believe the child was brought to the area earlier in the day.”
Catoosa County Sheriff Gary Sisk said in the statement, “We know someone is going through a very tragic time in their life and we want to help.”
The sheriff continued the statement by urging anyone who saw anything at the Graysville Canoe Launch, “such as a vehicle or people in the area,” before 1 p.m. Tuesday to call the sheriff’s office.
As part of the ongoing investigation, an autopsy will be performed on the infant’s body.
Those with information about the infant can call 706-935-2424.
Detective Brittany Gilleland, mentioned as a relevant party in the press release, can also be contacted by email at email@example.com
“…If you know someone who was pregnant and is now not having a baby, please call us,” Sheriff Gary Sisk said.
