LANCASTER, Pa. (AP) – Investigators are looking to new technology to help them identify the parents of an infant who was found dead in a Lancaster city dumpster nine years ago.
LNP reports police are hopeful that advances in DNA testing will yield new clues in the case. The baby girl’s body was placed in a tote bag and was discovered in a dumpster in September 2007.
The baby’s death was ruled a homicide due to complications of asphyxia. Her body was fairly decomposed, making it difficult for investigators to determine much more than the sex of the infant.
Police say investigators have exhausted many leads over the years but are revisiting some angles to get a fresh perspective.
