Baby Angel Investigation Continues
After 7 months, Winona County Sheriff Dave Brand says it was time to lay an unknown child to rest in a local cemetary. Baby Angel was found by boaters last year, floating in the Mississippi River. Brand says the tips have slowed as to who gave up the child and why the baby was placed in the river. But there's another reason they would like to find that person.....an empty, donated, headstone.
Since Angel was found last September, investigators have questioned
people and asked out of state agencies to report any leads. So far....nothing concrete at all. He said they are working with the child's DNA to possibly link her mother to the case. Angel was buried Saturday.
