Jersey City, New Jersey - Police are searching garbage dumps for the body of a baby boy delivered at Christ Hospital and apparently thrown out with the trash, authorities said today.
Bashire Moore was born days before Christmas with a weak heart that would kill him and when the funeral home came for the body, one tragedy was compounded by another.
The funeral home came to get the boy and his body wasn't there. "I looked at them and said, 'Excuse me?' And they were like. 'We can't find your son,'" mother Kalynn Moore said.
You heard it right. The baby born at Christ Hospital was lost. Moore's cousin, Nikia Royster, said she accompanied the baby to the morgue. "He had ID bracelets on both ankles," Royster said. "There was a tag on the t-shirt, and a tag on the blankets."
The funeral home came to the hospital 11 days after the birth of the baby, a child the family said lived for 20 minutes. The hospital and prosecutor said he was still born.
Meanwhile, investigators will begin sifting through dumps in New Jersey and Pennsylvania is search of the little boy, while his traumatized mother demands answers. "I can't believe that somebody threw my son out," Kalynn Moore said. "My son was supposed to be in the freezer. How did my son go from the freezer to the garbage? That's what I really want to know?"
