It's yet another cold case apparently cracked thanks to an ancestry website that collected people's DNA. This time, it involves a dead newborn found in a trash bag along an Ohio road in 1993. The baby's mother, 49-year-old Gail Eastwood-Ritchey, now faces murder charges, but the case has a grim surprise: Police say Eastwood-Ritchey admitted abandoning another infant two years prior, and authorities are searching for that baby, too. The details:
- The discovery: On March 25, 1993, the newborn's body was found by the side of a road in Geauga County, Ohio, reports News 5 Cleveland. Authorities say he was alive at birth, then left in the woods in a trash bag. Animals are believed to have partially dismembered the baby and dragged the bag near the road.
- 'Geauga's Child': The rattled community buried the child with a gravestone marked "Geauga's Child," with details on his death. People have continued to visit and leave flowers all these years, but police had no leads.
