Police await autopsy report for dead Deerpark baby

Officials are awaiting the results of an autopsy to help them find the person who dumped a baby in a Deerpark shed.

The autopsy was scheduled for Sunday. Investigators are not releasing the sex of the baby, but say they believe the child was about two weeks old. They say there were no obvious signs of abuse.

A neighbor found the body Friday when she went to retrieve hay from the shed. The landlord is not commenting on the case.
