Authorities Say They Think Baby Found Dead in Ventura County Strawberry Field May Have Been Delivered At The Scene

Posted on Wednesday, May 23, 2012 3:36pm

Authorities are continuing to look for the mother of what they now say was a full term baby found dead in a strawberry field near Oxnard.

An autopsy failed to disclose an obvious sign of death for the baby, who was found Monday morning by a worker on the 3200 block of Central Avenue. Additional test results are still pending. They still aren’t saying if it was a boy, or girl.

Ventura County Sheriff’s department officials say the case is being handled as a homicide. They say there were indications the baby was delivered at the scene.

Detectives are hoping someone will have noticed someone whose pregnancy ended over the weekend, with no sign of a baby.
