Police Locate Missing Mother of Abandoned Fetus


Lodi Police have located the mother of a fetus that was found Sunday morning in a Lodi dumpster.  The mother is safe and was not the victim of a crime, and is staying with family out of state.    At this point, the investigation is on-going to determine whether a crime was committed.  If so, the case will be referred to the District Attorney for review.


Due to the sensitive nature of the case, no identifying information on the mother, or specific case details, will be released at this time.  Anyone with information on this incident is asked to call LPD Detectives at 209-333-6732, or Lodi Area Crimestoppers at 209-333-6771.
