Baby found dead in Kern County trash

Detectives are investigating the death of a newborn baby, found in a trash can in the Kern County town of Oildale.
Detectives in Kern County are trying to figure out how a newborn died and who put her in the trash.

The baby was found in a trash can in Oildale with her umbilical cord still attached on Friday.

Investigators say she had an abrasion on her head but did not know if that was the cause of death or even if the child was dead when placed in the trash.

Kern County Sheriff's Deputies went door to door talking to neighbors to find out if anyone saw anything.

An autopsy was scheduled for Monday.
