Update:

The Riverside County Sheriff’s Central Homicide Unit has taken over the investigation. Earlier today an autopsy was performed, and it was determined that the infant was alive at birth and not a stillbirth. We are asking the public’s help in helping identify the mother of the infant. If you know someone who was due to give birth, is no longer pregnant, and you believe there is cause for concern please contact Investigator Magana (951) 955-2777.

The Safely Surrendered Baby Law (also known as the Safe Haven Law or Newborn Abandonment Law) allows a parent to “safely surrender” their unwanted newborn within 3 days of birth to an employee at any hospital emergency department, most fire stations or other designated “safe havens” in California, without the fear of arrest or prosecution, as long as the baby has not been abused or neglected.

Details:

On Friday, January 22, 2021, at 1:00 p.m., Perris Station deputies responded to the 1700 block of Goetz Road in the city of Perris regarding a report of a dead body. Upon arrival, deputies discovered a deceased infant who was discarded in the trash and found at the location.

The Perris Station Investigations Bureau assumed the investigation. This is an ongoing investigation and no additional details are currently available. If you know someone who was recently pregnant and is no longer pregnant, but they have not been seen with a newborn baby, the Riverside County Sheriff's Department encourages you to contact Investigator Lacy Stutler at the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department – Perris Station by calling (951) 210-1000, or by email at PerrisStation@riversidesheriff.org.
