From ‘Baby Doe’ to ‘Dawn’

The case is still as mysterious as the day “Baby Doe,” a newborn infant, was found on the side of a South Kitsap road in a garbage bag.

Investigators with the Kitsap County Sheriff’s Office have searched various leads, but nothing has helped find the mother of the child whose body was found April 5, 2006 along Bielmeier Road.

And, “although the investigation continues, it is time to put this precious baby to rest,” Kitsap County Coroner Greg Sandstrom said in a press release.

And so, with the help of Rill Chapel in Port Orchard, the baby will have a burial plot, Sandstrom said, as well as a marker and service — 2 p.m. April 12 — at the Sunset Lane Cemetery in Port Orchard.

The coroner’s office has also given the baby a name.

“Since she only saw the ‘dawn’ of her life before she left us, we felt the name ‘Dawn’ was most appropriate,” Sandstrom said.

Anyone and everyone is welcome to attend.
