ALBANY — The search for a 5-day-old Albany infant came to an end Jan. 10 when the child’s body was found at an unspecified Southern Wisconsin location.
The death is being investigated as a homicide, the Wisconsin Department of Justice reports. A person of interest has been taken into custody as investigation continues. Three photographs of a person walking in Albany on Jan. 5 were released to the public. The DOJ is asking for anyone who saw the photographed individual or has information on them to contact the Green County Sheriff’s Department at 608-328-9400.
The female infant was born Jan. 5 inside of an Albany residence, according to Green County Sheriff Jeff Skatrud and Albany Police Chief Robert Ritter in a press release from the Green County Sheriff’s Department said. It was reported that the baby’s father then removed her from the residence and handed her over to an unidentified third party. She had not been seen since and was reported missing Jan. 9.
Due to the information available at the time, the case did not fit criteria for an Amber Alert.
The Albany Police Department is leading the investigation, with assistance from the Green County Sheriff’s Office, Green County District Attorney, Green County Child Protective Services, Green County Coroner’s Office, FBI, Wisconsin Department of Justice Division of Criminal Investigation, Wisconsin State Crime Laboratory, Wisconsin State Patrol, and Wisconsin K9 SOS Search and Rescue.
The investigation of the death is still active. Anyone with information about this incident should contact the Green County Sheriff’s Department at 608-328-9400.
