CLINTON TOWNSHIP, MI – Authorities are still trying to determine where he came from after he was discovered at a Roseville recycling center on January 15th, 2015. However, the baby has an unofficial name: Henry Alexander Macomb.
Workers at the Macomb County Medical Examiner’s Office named the boy after the county’s namesake, Gen. Alexander Macomb.
The baby boy will also get a proper burial, thanks to donations from the Clinton Township firefighters’ union and the head of Rizzo Environmental Services.
The Clinton Township Firefighters Association Local 11381 will purchase a tombstone and cover burial costs for the child, found by workers at the ReCommunity Recycling center in Roseville January 15th, 2015.
The baby boy will be buried in the children’s section of Resurrection Cemetery across from the Clinton Township offices. Resurrection Cemetery has donated a plot and Kahl Funeral Home donated a casket. McLaren Hospital and Henry Ford Hospital presidents offered to pick up any additional costs.
Crime Stoppers of Michigan is offering a $2500 reward for information leading to the arrest in the death of that newborn.
It appears as if the newborn was discarded just after birth as his umbilical cord was still attached.
Many jurisdictions use the recycling center and it is possible the newborn could could have come from any jurisdiction in lower Michigan.
