Cape D.A.: Mother of Infant Found at Rochester Recycling Facility May Be ‘At Risk’
The Cape and Islands District Attorney said the mother of the infant girl whose remains were found last week at a Rochester recycling facility may be “at risk.”
D.A. Robert J. Galibois issued a statement Monday stating he is still seeking and urging the public’s help in identifying the deceased baby discovered last week at the recycling facility. It has been referred to in press releases as Zero Waste Solutions, but the facility came under the ownership of E.L. Harvey following its purchase of ABC Disposal last year.
Galibois said he is concerned for the welfare of the child’s mother.
“While there is no threat to the general public, the investigation to date suggests that the health and welfare of the mother may be at risk,” he said. “Identifying her as soon as possible is of paramount importance and urgency.”
Galibois previously stated that it was believed the mother of the child “may live on, have ties to, or recently traveled to Martha’s Vineyard.” The remains were found on Thursday, April 27 among refuse that had come to the facility from the Vineyard.
Anyone with information on the case should contact Massachusetts State Trooper Dustin Shaw at (508) 790-5799.
