Three infants found in the river in past 12 years

Babies found in the Mississippi River in Goodhue County in the past 12 years:

• A girl discovered Nov. 4, 1999, near a marina in Red Wing.

• A boy found Dec. 7, 2003, at the Florence Township Beach in Frontenac.

• A girl found March 26, 2007, at the Treasure Island Marina in Welch.

Genetic testing done on the babies indicated a "high probability" that the babies discovered in 1999 and 2003 likely had the same mother and were of European or Caucasian descent. Investigators believe both were born alive and were thrown in the water within a day of their births.


The baby discovered in 2007 was likely of American Indian descent.
