full term. But the cause of death is unknown. The body was taken to
a state laboratory for an autopsy.

The coroner says the body was inside a black trash bag that an
officer found lying on Clarke Avenue in Tuskegee. It's unclear how
long the bag had been there, or how long the baby boy had been

Bentley wouldn't speculate on whether the child may have been
stillborn, or if someone had disposed on an unwanted child.
