A newborn baby, found June 21 in a trash bag on the side of a road in Newcastle, was given a proper burial Monday by members of the Placer County Sheriff’s Department.

The child was found by a woman walking through an undeveloped subdivision when she smelled an odor coming from a pile of garbage bags a few feet off the roadway, investigators say.

The boy’s body was found in the bags.

Investigators say the child’s mother has not been found.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Placer County Sheriff’s Office at (530) 889-7800. Callers can remain anonymous.
