Cape and Islands District Attorney Robert Galibois and the Massachusetts State Police continue to seek the public’s assistance in identifying the deceased baby girl discovered last week at a recycling facility in Rochester, Massachusetts as well as the baby’s mother.


According to District Attorney Galibois, “the investigation to date suggests that the health and welfare of the mother may be at risk. Identifying her as soon as possible is of paramount importance and urgency.”

The baby girl’s mother or father may live on, have ties to, or recently have travelled to Martha’s Vineyard.

The newborn’s remains were discovered Thursday, April 27, 2023 by employees at Zero Waste Solutions, a regional recycling facility in Rochester, Massachusetts. The baby was within an assortment of trash that appears to have originated from Martha’s Vineyard and was shipped to that facility for disposal.

The Office of the Chief Medical Examiner has begun post-mortem examination of the baby. Results from that examination, which is ongoing, are not being released at this time.

Anyone who has any information about the possible identity of this baby girl or her parents is urged to contact Trooper Dustin Shaw of the State Police Detective Unit for the Cape and Islands at at 508-790-5799.
