HOUSTON -- Houston police are waiting on autopsy results on a baby boy whose mummified corpse was found beneath his mother's bathroom sink.
Police were called to the woman's apartment in northwest Houston about 9:30 p.m. Wednesday by the 24-year-old woman's parents. Police spokesman Jack Harvey says the parents asked their daughter about a foul odor coming from below the sink and were told it was a dead baby.
The parents took the blanket-wrapped corpse outside and called police. Investigators say the baby appeared to have been delivered full-term about two months ago. Detectives want to establish whether the child was stillborn or born alive, and whether foul play was involved.
Until then, police and Child Protective Services say no charges will be filed.
