    Update: It was released today that the state autopsy revealed that the baby was born alive, and died from injuries sustained in the fall. The poor little thing must have still been alive when someone placed it in the weighted bag.

    This is very sad. If this baby was so unwanted, why not give it up instead of killing it? There are thousands of people in this world who would love to have a baby but can't and would raise it in a loving home.
    To the world you might be one person, but to one person you just might be the world.

    Church, mayor offer funeral for newborn found dead on riverbank
    March 25, 2004 12:58 PM
    Inwood
    At least two offers have been made to provide funeral services for a newborn whose body was found in a garbage bag on the banks of the Shenandoah River in Jefferson County.

    Berkeley County's St. Leo Roman Catholic Church in Inwood has established a benefit fund with the Bank of Charles Town for the infant, who has been named Adam by the congregation.

    Church member Larry McCabe says that if no one claims the infant's body, the church would provide a funeral and burial.

    The infant's body was found Sunday by a Harpers Ferry National Historical Park ranger.

    Autopsy results show the baby likely was alive when he was tossed from the US Route 340 bridge near Harpers Ferry.

    Susan Webster, the mayor of the Morgan County town of Bath, plans to ask town council to donate a burial spot for the child.

    Webster also says a Mass will be celebrated on Easter Sunday for the infant at St. Vincent De Paul Church in Berkeley Springs.

    The Jefferson County Sheriff's Department has said the body will remain in the state's custody until the case is resolved.
