STERLING, Va. (WTVR)–An autopsy report reveals the body of a newborn baby girl found in a Loudoun County pond over the weekend had been there for at least a day or two.
The autopsy concluded that she was full term, but could not determine if she had been born alive or stillborn. The child was either Hispanic or white and weighed 7 pounds.
The autopsy revealed there was no food in her stomach. Police said this meant she was likely placed in the pond shortly after she was born.
The baby’s body was found Sunday in a pond in Sterling. Police are still looking for the mother and have expressed concern that she might need medical attention.
