MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - A tip from a local doctor prompted the search for a possible dead baby's body from Lee county Tuesday afternoon. Montgomery's Major Thorton and and the Montgomery police department will meet this morning to decide whether to continue search for the baby's body in a Tallassee landfill. Authorities are not calling this case a death investigation. The mother of the child claims "the baby's body was inadvertantly thrown away!" Investigators have not released the mother's name because no charges have been made.
