Burial site offered for baby dumped in Mississippi


RED WING, Minn. (AP) — An infant girl whose body was found recently in the Mississippi River may soon find her final resting place near three other babies discarded in the same way.

Jeanne and Don Madtson donated space in their family plot in Red Wing's Oakwood Cemetery for the first three babies, whose bodies were found in 1999, 2004 and 2007. Their names are etched on a single stone: Jamie, Corey and Abby.
