Baby Found in Florida Freezer

Autopsy is pending as investigation continues


 
 

| Thursday, February 2, 2012


An autopsy is pending for an infant found in a freezer in a home in southwest Florida, police said Wednesday.

After a woman, identified as Jessica Smallwood, was hospitalized with heavy bleeding Monday, hospital officials gave information to police which prompted a search of her home in Punta Gorda, near the city of Port Charlotte. Punta Gorda police discovered the baby in a freezer Monday night, the Sarasota Herald-Tribune reported.

Detectives returned to the home Tuesday with the Sarasota K-9 Search and Rescue crew. The Charlotte County Sheriff's Office, the State Attorney's Office and the Medical Examiner's Office, which will perform the autopsy, are involved in the investigation.
