Police locate persons of interest in connection to newborn found in Enid dumpster

ENID, OK (KOCO) — Enid police have confirmed that they have located persons of interest in connection to a baby’s body that was found inside of a dumpster.

The police were notified as residents reported a foul order coming from the receptacle.

“When you smell it, you're going to know something is not right,” Capt. Jack Morris said. “You have the medical examiner doing their exams, which is going to try to help us with if the child was stillborn at the time it was delivered or alive, maybe try to narrow time of death.”

No arrests have been made at this time.

“We are going through our investigation to determine their involvement,” Morris said. “The most obvious [charge] is the disposal of a body, that's improper, so you'd look at state charges, but anything that comes out of this is going to depend on what your medical findings can be.”
