Police seek public's help in abandoned baby death

WASHINGTON (AP) - D.C. police are asking the public for help in the case of an abandoned baby who died hours after being found last January in Northeast Washington.

Police say detectives have put in hundreds of hours on the case, but haven't found the girl's mother or anyone connected to the infant.

Police say they are appealing to the public to learn who left the infant near a white picket fence. Investigators told The Washington Post that they have the infant's DNA, but because of privacy laws can't run her genetic code through a database to find a possible link to a family member. They have also conducted DNA tests on people who were interviewed and consented, but none have provided a link to the baby.
