East St. Louis Newborn Thrown Out of Window

St. Louis (KMOX) Police in East St Louis say a 23 year old woman has confessed to throwing her newborn son out of a second story window yesterday (Friday). The child was found-wrapped in a sheet-in a weeded area next to the home in the 500 block of North 22nd Street.

Authorities say an autopsy will be conducted to determine if the baby boy was stillborn or died of injuries.

The mother was taken to a hospital where she is listed in stable condition. East St Louis Police Chief Michael Floore says for now-the case is being handled as a homicide.
