Dead baby found in Mississippi River backwaters
A dead baby was found Monday floating in the water at Prairie Island Marina, according to the Goodhue County sheriff's department.
Authorities have not yet released information regarding the sex of the child or how long it was floating in Sturgeon Lake, though it appears the baby was a newborn.
"We'll know more after the autopsy," said Pat Thompson, captain of the sheriff's department investigation unit. "We don't know any details on how the baby died or where."
