Mother of newborn baby found in Roseville recycling center arrested Monday
Detectives at the Roseville Police Department have arrested a 24-year-old woman in connection with the death and abandonment of a newborn baby. That 24-year-old woman we are being told by police is the mother of the deceased infant.
Workers found the body of the baby the night of January 14 while sorting through trash at the ReCommunity recycling center on Groesbeck. The boy is said to have been between 1 and 3 days old.
“At first they thought it was a doll,” said Roseville Police Chief James Berlin. “When they looked a little closer they discovered that it was in fact, an infant.”
Chief Berlin tells FOX 2 the funeral expenses are being donated by local companies. Local businesses and community members are contributing a casket, headstone and cemetery plot. Burial is planned at Resurrection Cemetery in Clinton Township.
Authorities are still working to identify the baby boy, but morgue employees named the child Henry Alexander Macomb, after Macomb County’s namesake Gen. Alexander Macomb.
Tips are being sought in the investigation.
Authorities say the woman will be in court tomorrow for her arraignment where the charges may include murder.

The man accused of shooting and killing a 15-year-old boy outside of a Family Dollar in Detroit was in court Monday, where it was decided that the case will headed for trial.
Police say 18-year-old Anthony Baldwin shot and killed 15-year-old Marcus Hill outside of a Family Dollar on Joy Road during the afternoon of January 7.
Baldwin is charged with murder of Hill and gang activity.
According to police reports, rival gangs were fighting over a cell phone when Hill was shot in the head by Baldwin.
On the stand Monday, one of Hill’s cousins who was at the store with him that day says that both Hill and Baldwin pulled guns on one another, but was unclear of who shot first and was not clear when asked if his cousin Marcus even fired.
Since the arrest of Baldwin, death threats against his family and intimidation tactics used by apparent rival gang members had Judge Ronald Giles giving everyone in attendance of the court preceding today a stern warning, the warning that he will not hesitate to lock anyone up who interrupts court proceedings.
Baldwin’s attorney’s alledge the shooting was in self-defense. Defense attorney Cliff Woodards said, “let the facts come out and let the jury make the decision without any more violence.
