Cindy Nicole Crow arrested after dead newborn found in rubbish bin

After her dead newborn was discovered discarded in a trash can outside a corner store, a mother was taken into custody.

Cindy Nicole Crow, 36, was placed under arrest on a $200,000 bond after authorities in Alabama claimed to have received a tip that the trash can at Wally World Mini Mart needed to be examined.

Cindy, who is thought to be eight months pregnant, was asked to have her well-being checked by Decatur police on Monday by a worried family member. According to accounts, the relative informed police that she thought Crow had given birth but was unsure of the baby’s location.

A deceased baby girl was discovered inside a trash bag in the store’s trash can beneath numerous other bags of rubbish when detectives arrived on Tuesday. In order to ascertain the cause of death, the baby’s body was brought to the Alabama Department of Forensic Sciences in Huntsville.

“As the investigation progressed, evidence was obtained that confirmed Crow had been pregnant as early as February 2023 and had recently given birth. However, her newborn baby was unaccounted for,” police said in a statement.

A criminal warrant for Crow’s arrest was secured by investigators on Wednesday. She was taken to the Morgan County Jail on suspicion of abusing a deceased person. It’s unclear from jail records if she has a lawyer who could represent her. There could be further charges, according to the officials.

It is the first time the box has been utilized in New Mexico, and it happened only a few weeks after an unidentified mother turned in her infant at a Hobbs fire station. An alarm that the box had been opened was sent out by the climate-controlled incubator. Officials from Fire Station 1 reported that the infant was brought right away to a hospital and found to be in good health.

The Department of Children, Youth, and Families of New Mexico is currently in charge of the kid. About a year and a half after a local teen made national headlines for putting her child into a trash can, the Hobbs baby box was dedicated in May. Afterwards, she received a 16-year prison sentence.

The safe haven statute in New Mexico, which permits parents to leave a newborn under 90 days old at a safe location without facing criminal charges, came up again after that case in the state’s communities and among lawmakers. A plan to expand New Mexico’s safe haven program and fund the construction of one baby box for each county where a newborn can be left was approved by lawmakers last year.

As of right now, a Espanola fire station has the lone other Safe Haven Baby Box in the state. However, lawmakers stated that Belen will host the next box’s dedication the following month, with Carlsbad, Roswell, and Portales being discussed as potential locations.
