SAN ANTONIO (AP) — An infant found dead at a San Antonio recycling plant in December still awaits a proper burial, a child advocate says.
Meanwhile the child's mother, 25-year-old Nidia Alvarado, remains in Bexar (BAYR) County Jail charged with capital murder in the death of the newborn child. Bond is set at $2 million.
Child advocate Pamela Allen tells the San Antonio Express-News (http://bit.ly/MJVC69) that authorities are requiring authorization from the child's biological father in order to release the body.
However, Allen says that the biological father may never be identified.
Alvarado relinquished her parental rights at a jailhouse meeting. An arrest affidavit says she admitted to strangling the baby and leaving him inside a duffel bag on a conveyor belt at the San Antonio recycling plant on Dec. 23.
