The name of the three-month-old girl whose body was tragically discovered in a Bronx woodland has been released by law enforcement officials as they begin questioning her parents regarding the circumstances of her death.
The lifeless body of the infant, Genevieve Comager, was found late Sunday night. The discovery came after a thorough search of the area after she suddenly disappeared from a local shelter, where she and her family had been residing.
First responders confirmed that the baby was deceased. The exact cause of Genevieve’s death remains uncertain, with the circumstances of her demise seeming dubious.
Detectives are now seeking to unravel the mysterious circumstances surrounding the baby’s death, focusing particularly on her parents, a 23-year-old father and a 20-year-old mother. By Monday morning, no charges had been laid. However, the baby’s father seems to be the principal focus of the ongoing police investigation.
This tragic incident came to light when police responded to a call from the shelter. A concerned family member had reached out to the city’s Administration for Children’s Services, expressing apprehension about the baby’s well-being.
The shelter, located on University Avenue, is recognized as transitional housing, providing temporary accommodation for those in need.
The medical examiner is currently undertaking an autopsy to determine the exact cause of the infant’s death.
