The Clark County Coroner has ruled the cause of death of Baby Girl Robinson, the infant found last month in a Las Vegas trash bin, as undetermined, the Coroner’s Office said Friday.
A maintenance worker found the infant’s body July 18 in a commercial trash bin at the Rancho Mesa Apartments, 2881 N. Rancho Drive. The apartments are near the North Las Vegas Airport.
A day later, Metro Police announced they had identified the baby's mother — a juvenile who allegedly hid her pregnancy and the child's birth from family and friends.
The Coroner’s Office was unable to conclusively determine whether Baby Girl Robinson was stillborn. An office spokeswoman said Friday’s announcement would be the coroner’s final ruling in the case.
Metro Police spokesman Bill Cassell said the department was continuing its investigation and there was no timeline for when it would be finished.
“When the investigation is completed, we’ll submit those findings to District Attorney’s Office. They will make decision on whether prosecution is warranted,” Cassell said.
