ST. CLAIR COUNTY, MI – A woman has come forward with specific details about the infant that was found buried in a shallow grave in Clay Township.
The woman states that she is the mother of the deceased child. Clay Township police Chief Don Drake says in a statement released Wednesday that his department is working to confirm those details but he does believe her to be credible.
Autopsy results haven’t yet been released. A person doing yard work on Sunday discovered a newborn child in a shallow grave about 6:30PM in the 9300 block of Stone Road. “I dug up a plastic container and there was a baby in it,” the man is heard telling a 911 operator. “A human baby.”
Prosecutors are expected to review the case.
