LAS VEGAS -- Las Vegas Homicide detectives have located the mother of the infant found dead in a trash dumpster and identified the infant found in the dumpster as a female.

The mother concealed the pregnancy from friends and family, and gave birth to the baby girl at home.

It is believed the child was born approximately one month ago, however a determination whether the child was born alive or was stillborn has not been made by the Clark County Coroner’s Office.

It is further believed the juvenile mother of the newborn concealed the body of the infant in her residence until placing it into the dumpster.

No arrests have been made in connection with this case, and the investigation into this incident remains ongoing.
