On March 24, 1966, a man out on a drive located a male baby wrapped in blue cloth.
The man had stopped in a pull out two miles south of Simms on Alameda and saw the baby down an embankment.
The newborn baby was determined to have been full term, and had died of exposure.
The umbilical cord was still attached and had not been tied and had been torn from the placenta. The mother might have suffered from uterine bleeding following the birth.
