DENVER - Police seek 2nd mom who put baby in trash

Denver Post, Col, U.S.A. June 28, 2004

Denver police on Sunday were still looking for a woman who gave birth and then dumped her newborn son in the trash at a sports bar.

The dead baby was found early Saturday in the women's restroom of a bar at East 2nd Avenue and Milwaukee Street in Cherry Creek North. The bathroom is shared by several businesses and can be reached from an alley.

Police said they are asking anyone who might know the mother to contact investigators.

"If anyone knew someone who was pregnant and no longer has a child, we're hoping they'll contact us," said police spokeswoman Virginia Lopez.

Another newborn boy was in critical condition after being left for dead Friday in a trash container in an alley between the 4800 blocks of Beach Court and Bryant Street. The boy was on life-support Sunday, officials said.

His 19-year-old mother is in police custody and could face felony charges of child abuse resulting in death if the infant dies, Lopez said.
