Couple To Help Baby

A Red Wing couple has offered a burial site for the infant girl found floating down the Mississippi River in a bag over the memorial weekend.

Jeanne and Don Madtson donated space in their family plot for three other babies also discarded in 1999, 2004 and 2007. The Madtsons lost their stillborn daughter over 20 year ago. Jeanne Madtson said this was a way to show that the 7 pound girl and the other three babies were loved.

The Winona County Sheriff's Department is still looking for information on who disposed of the child, found 6 miles south of Winona.
