D.C. infant’s death ruled a homicide
Question of the Day
The death of a newborn girl, who died after being abandoned in freezing temperatures on the steps of a Northeast home in January, has been ruled a homicide, according to the District’s medical examiner.
A spokeswoman for the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner confirmed Thursday that the girl, believed to be about a week old, died of hypothermia and that the manner of her death is considered a homicide. Spokeswoman Beverly Fields would not say when the ruling was made.
The baby was found unconscious and partially covered with a towel on Jan. 15 in the 3000 block of Channing Street in Northeast, according to police. A resident who lived on the block found the child — who he said was cold to the touch — laying on the concrete steps of his neighbor’s home as he returned from a trip to the store.
In the weeks after the girl’s body was discovered, police publicized the investigation in an effort to find her parents. Metropolitan Police Department officials had no further information on the investigation into the baby’s death on Thursday.
