More drawings of persons of interest in baby death  

Key West police have a drawing of the suspected mother of a newborn baby found dead at a city resort Oct. 31 and an updated version of a drawing previously released of a man who was outside the hotel women’s restroom where the birth presumably took place, said Key West Police Detective Dan Allen.

Police are seeking help from the public in finding the persons involved in the case.

The woman was described as in her early to mid-20s, 5 feet, 4 inches tall, 130 to 140 pounds, with brownish blond, shoulder length hair, and wearing a baggy, white t-shirt. Allen said. The man, one of three seen outside the second floor lobby restroom at the Hilton Resort and Marina, was described as in his late 20s, tanned, had a goatee, and was very slender and tall, perhaps 6 feet 1 inch to 6 feet 4 inches tall. His reddish blond hair was sticking out from under a bright red baseball cap and he was wearing a bright red t-shirt. Allen said the earlier drawing of that suspect, released Nov. 9, should be disregarded. It showed him with a narrow face and dark complexion.

The television show “America’s Most Wanted,” will be airing these drawings plus one of the man believed to be the baby’s father, also released Nov. 9, on the Fox Network at 9 p.m. this Saturday, Nov. 20. Allen asks that Keys residents watch the program in case it triggers any new information on the suspects.

A housekeeper at the resort early that Sunday morning discovered the deceased, newborn infant girl in a garbage can in a women’s bathroom with the placenta and umbilical cord still attached. A security guard told detectives he noticed three men sitting for about 20 minutes in a second floor lounge area, where the bathroom is located. Lee said the men told the guard a female friend was very sick in the bathroom and they were waiting for her.

Anyone with any information on this investigation is asked to call Allen at 809-1022 or Crime Stoppers. Crime Stoppers will pay a cash reward to the tipster whose information leads to an arrest in the case. All callers to Crime Stoppers may remain anonymous. The tips line number is 1-800-346-TIPS (8477).
