Baby Boy found dumped on Galveston Beach

  1. I just saw this on my local news :sad:

    GALVESTON, TX (KTRK) -- A tragic discovery was made along the Galveston seawall -- the body of a baby boy was found on the side of the road, not far from a child's car seat. A couple discovered the body around 9am Tuesday, near Seawall Boulevard and Ferry Road.
    Jesse Zaro often spends his days off on this part of the island. He likes to take his wife bird-watching. But this time what started as just another outing turned into something he won't soon forget.
    "I don't know how to handle myself," Zaro explained. "I cried. It just hit me like a ton of rocks."
    It isn't easy for Zaro to talk about what he and his wife saw while sight-seeing along Cherry Hill Ridge along Galveston's east end.

    He recalled, "I looked over to the side, and it looked like a doll at first. And then I just said, 'Oh my God.'"
    What Zaro thought was a doll was actually a baby boy with blondish hair, three to six months old, lying face down on the ground, wearing only a diaper.
    "It was horrible. I went to pieces," Zaro said. "I just could not believe it. It was horrible  a little bitty defenseless baby. That's what I found."
    He also saw a car seat less than 30 feet away. Police don't think it's a coincidence, and they suspect foul play.
    Lt. Jorge Trevino with the Galveston Police Department explained, "We have to assume, just by the location of the car seat, it appears that the child was in the car seat at one time and then became separated from the car seat. That's how the car seat ended up 20 feet from it."
    As crime scene investigators cordoned off the area so they could search for clues, detectives are checking local medical records in hopes of discovering the baby's identity. Zaro says all he wants is justice.
    He said, "If you couldn't handle what you had, you could have given it to somebody who could have cared for that baby. But why hurt a poor, defenseless little baby?"
    Investigators say the child had head trauma. The Galveston County Medical Examiner's office is in the process of conducting an autopsy to determine how that baby died. Investigators think he may have been dumped at the location, possibly overnight. Galveston police hope to release a sketch of the baby.
    If you have any information about the infant found, or if you happened to see anything, you're asked to call the Galveston Police Department at 409-765-3662.
  2. OMG, this is so tragic and there is just no excuse. I pray that they find the monster(s) who did this and that this poor liitle baby may be at peace.
  3. :crybaby:I am at a loss for words....I feel for the turmoil and utter shock that the couple that found the baby must be going through. I hope they catch the disgusting individual/s that did this to a poor defenceless baby and that they suffer unimaginable horrors.
  4. What is wrong with people? OMG
  5. This is really tragic and news like this gets me really ticked off. Seriously, some people just shouldn't have children. If you don't want your child, give it up to someone else, drop it off at the hospital, drop it off at a fire department or police precinct, don't leave your baby there to die. I remember when I was in H.S. (2 years ago), all I kept hearing about were babies being found in trash bags or found in dumpsters. It really makes me sick.
  6. What is the deal with dumping childrens' bodies in Galveston?! Sick sick sick!
  7. Is this the same Galveston where Baby Grace was found?
  8. ^^ Yes....Baby Grace's real name is Riley Ann Sawyer. Since Galveston is an island, I think these people don't really think the bodies will wash ashore, but...they do, and hopefully, like in Riley's case, the crime will be solved.
  9. Thanks Dani :smile:

    How horrific- just a handful of months old, what a tragedy. I hope they track down whoever did this. The people of Galveston must be reeling too.
  10. OMG, some people need to be shot. I just don't understand how a coward can do such a thing to a poor baby. I'm disgusted.
  11. This is absolutley disgusting....I hope the find the bastard that did this and put a bullet threw his or her head.
  12. there is absolutely no reason possible to do this to a baby. whoever did it, Jahpson says "off with their head!"
  13. :sad:
  14. :wtf:
  15. That's sad. For some reason I just picture this baby crawling from the car seat after it had been hurt. It's sickening. So many people should not have babies.
