Dead baby found in Koreatown alley


The body of a newborn baby was found in an alley in Koreatown on Wednesday evening, police said.

Officers from the Los Angeles Police Department’s Olympic Division responded to a call just after 5 p.m., according to spokesman Tony Im.

He had initially described the newborn as a baby about 26 weeks old.

Authorities had set up a crime scene, and the department’s abused child unit was conducting an investigation into the death.


Im could not provide information as to whether the baby had been identified, its sex or how it had died.
