Images of Red Wing infants reconstructed
Last update: February 8, 2008 - 11:37 PM

RED WING, MINN. - The Goodhue County Sheriff's Office has released composite images of three infants found dead along the Mississippi River from 1999 to 2007, hoping they will spur new leads in cases that have stymied investigators for years.

The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children created the images, which represent how the babies might have appeared in their first year. Forensic artists prepared the images based on photos that local authorities took.

"We're trying to do everything in our power and trying to think outside the box on solving this case," Sheriff's Capt. Pat Thompson told the Red Wing Republican Eagle.

Sheriff Dean Albers said he hopes one of the images might spark a memory for someone who could provide investigators with new information.

In 1999, two fishermen spotted a baby girl's body floating near Bay Point Park. Four years later, a group of teenagers discovered the body of a newborn boy along the water in Old Frontenac, Minn., and last year, two workers at a Prairie Island marina found another body of a baby girl.

Authorities believe the babies found in 1999 and 2003 probably came from the same mother. They don't believe the baby found last year is related to the first two.

Thompson said the Sheriff's Office has developed about 100 leads, and said investigators are currently working on what he called a promising lead.
