Case History
The body of a full-term infant with the umbilical cord still attached was discovered 10 yards north of the Mississippi River shore near 800 Levee Drive. Authorities named her Jamie.

Another baby, 1044UMMN, was located in 2003, and is genetically related maternally. Police believe the children had separate fathers. Investigators believe that the infants were born alive. Autopsies were never able to ascertain causes of death. The mother of the children may have hidden the pregnancies and is probably familiar with the area.

Forensic artists from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children used photographs of the bodies and the infants' skull measurements to create composite drawings of what the babies might have looked like at the time of their deaths. The clothing in the drawings is not connected to the investigation.

Authorities hope the composites can help piece together a frustrating puzzle. Over the years they have had more than 100 leads.

After the discovery of the infants, a local couple paid to have them buried next to their own stillborn daughter, under headstones that read "God's Little Angel."
