There’s a special place in hell for someone who would leave a baby in a dumpster.
Where? Is that all the details you plan to give?

this is what has inspired a lot of programs where babies can be dumped at police stations and hospitals, no questions asked
Xantea – that’s all I have at this point.
Thanks….It’s sad to hear something like this in Richmond…
From the RPD:
Infant Death Investigation
The Richmond Police Department is investigating the death of an infant found in a dumpster behind a building at 1805 Monument Avenue.
Officers were called to the scene shortly after 8 p.m. When they arrived, the infant was unresponsive. The infant was later pronounced dead.
The medical examiner will determine the gender of the infant and the exact cause of death.
Detectives would like to speak to a woman who may be the mother of the infant. She has been described to investigators as a black female, dark-skinned with braided hair and wearing a Dallas Cowboys sweatshirt.
They are asking anyone with any information about this crime to call Crime Stoppers at 780-1000 or text Crime Stoppers at 274637, using the key word “ITip” followed by your tip. Both methods are anonymous.

Infant Death Ruled Homicide
Richmond Police detectives have arrested a woman in connection to the discovery of a deceased infant in a dumpster last night.
The Medical Examiner’s Office has ruled the death of the infant–a female–a homicide.
At approximately 8 p.m. Tuesday, officers responded to an alley in the 1800 block of Monument Avenue and found the baby unresponsive. The infant was later pronounced dead.
After further investigation, detectives identified the child’s mother as ShaVaughn Robinson, 27, of the 1600 block of Wentbridge Road, and have charged her with felony concealment of a body.
Detectives are currently speaking with the Commonwealth’s Attorney’s Office to determine additional charges. Because this investigation is still active, detectives are not releasing further information at this time.
Detectives would like to thank everyone who spoke with officers and provided information that allowed them to identify and make the arrest.
