33 years later, 2 newborn babies’ deaths remain unsolved

GREENWICH - Thirty-three years later, police in Greenwich and Fairfield continue to investigate how they died.

On Monday, Greenwich police said they are continuing to investigate the unsolved death of a baby boy who died on May 16, 1986. He would have been 33 years old this week.

The baby boy, who was named “Baby John” by investigators, was found dead in a dumpster of an apartment building on Mason Street in downtown Greenwich.

The medical examiner determined that Baby John was killed shortly after being born.

The State of Connecticut is offering a $20,000.00 reward for information that leads to the arrest and conviction of the person or persons responsible.

Nearly two months before the Greenwich infant was found, a newborn baby boy’s body was found strangled and mutilated at Lake Mohegan in Fairfield.

That case also remains unsolved.

Photos from the crime scene that day and the following autopsy show the baby’s broken jaw, leaving him trapped in what looks like a permanent scream.

A public works employee emptying garbage cans in the picnic area near the cascades at Lake Mohegan found the body of a newborn baby on a chilly, foggy March morning on the leaf-strewn ground.

Victor was found on a scrap of burlap, wrapped in women’s pajamas, covered with a scrap of plastic and surrounded by pieces of food, fruit and coins. Police said the crime scene seemed to indicate a ritual killing.

More recently on Oct. 16, 2018, a newborn baby was found dead at a Stamford garbage and recycling facility.

Police say the baby was likely left in a dumpster at a commercial property in Stamford, Norwalk, Westport, Ridgefield, Danbury or in Westchester County, but are hoping for a break in the case to pinpoint the exact location.

That case also remains unsolved.

Greenwich Police are asking anyone who may have any information on Baby John’s death or the circumstances surrounding it to contact the Tip Line at: (203) 622-3333 (Local) (800) 372-1176 (Toll Free)
