Infant found dead in bag
Cops say mother gave birth, suffocated child
Police disclosed the findings yesterday. The city medical examiner's office says an autopsy was inconclusive and more tests are needed.
Police believe Tiana Rodriguez, 17, gave birth to the baby at a friend's house and that the infant was later asphyxiated.
The remains were discovered Thursday when a security guard stopped Rodriguez and her friend, Francis Estevez, at a Victoria's Secret store.
It's unclear whether either girl has a lawyer.
A woman who answered the phone at a possible home number for Rodriguez said she knew nothing about the matter. No telephone number could be found for Estevez.
