“The only crime we had was dumping the baby girl in the trash can,” Fornshell said.
Police responded to the motel at about 10 a.m. that day on a report of a “possible abandoned baby.”
Warren County Coroner’s investigator Doyle Burke previously told this news organization that the body of a girl was found in a trashcan in one of the rooms. The mother had gone to an area hospital after a 911 call was placed.
Also found in the the room were a clear plastic bag containing two grams of a crystal rock substance, a bag containing white powder, gummy worms laced with an unknown substance and paper tabs laced with an unknown substance, possibly acid, according to the Monroe police report.
