Investigators have narrowed down several locations where recycling materials came from in which the body of a full-term newborn baby boy was found dead by an employee at a garbage carting facility in Stamford early Tuesday morning.

The body was discovered around 8:40 a.m. at the City Carting garbage transfer station at Taylor Reed Place by an employee, said Stamford Police Lt. Thomas Scanlon.

Late Tuesday afternoon, Scanlon said investigators have established that material was dropped off from companies that operate in the following areas: Stamford, Greenwich, Somers (in Northern Westchester County),  the Oyster Bay area of Long Island, and Andover, Massachusetts.

After finding the infant, police, fire, and EMS responded to the scene, but it was too late for any type of rescue, police said.

The Office of the Chief Medical Examiner responded and took custody of the baby, Scanlon said.

Scanlon said the station is an "active crime scene," and that detectives were in the early stages of the investigation.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Stamford Police Major Crimes at 203-977-4420. All calls will be kept confidential.
