Missouri police find dead baby in trash can after 911 call


LEE’S SUMMIT (AP) — Authorities have found a dead baby in a trash can outside a suburban Kansas City apartment.

Reports say that the discovery was made Tuesday after a man called police and said he found the body in a closet and was so rattled he threw the remains in the trash.

Police Sgt. Chris Depue said Friday that no charges have been filed and that the case is currently classified as a death investigation.
