Toxicology tests come back clean on baby "Noah"


Toxicology tests show a baby, thrown away with the trash, had no illegal drugs or alcohol in his system.  Winnebago County Coroner Sue Fiduccia says they were doing that test to see if baby "Noah's" mom was possibly on drugs when she abandoned him.

You may remember, Noah was found on a conveyor belt at a Roscoe recycling facility July 13th.  Winnebago County Sheriff's Police think he was in trash delivered to the facility from the Poplar Grove area.  The Coroner's office gave the baby the name "Noah".  He was buried at Calvary Cemetery a week after he was found.  Autopsy results showed that the baby was full term, and probably born alive.  Police are still looking for "Noah's" parents. They're hoping DNA tests lead them to them.
