KENOSHA, Wis. (AP) - Detectives investigating the 1989 death of a newborn in Kenosha County say they have targeted a person of interest in the homicide case.

In order to obtain DNA evidence, the remains of the boy, known as Baby John Doe, were exhumed from a cemetery in the Town of Randall Thursday.

Trappers found the infant’s body beneath the Des Plaines River Bridge in the Town of Paris on Nov. 9, 1989. An autopsy determined the baby was born alive and his death was ruled a homicide.

The sheriff’s office says the case was reopened about a year ago when new information became available.

The remains were turned over to the Kenosha County medical examiner’s office. Eventually the remains will be sent to the University of North Texas to obtain a DNA sample.
