Police: Baby found in NY shopping bag born alive

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK -

Police say a dead baby found in a teenage girl's shopping bag at a New York City lingerie store was born alive and then asphyxiated.

Police disclosed the findings Friday. The city medical examiner's office says an autopsy was inconclusive and more tests are needed.

Police believe 17-year-old Tiana Rodriguez gave birth to the baby at a friend's house and that the infant was later asphyxiated.

The remains were discovered Thursday when a security guard stopped Rodriguez and her friend Francis Estevez at a Victoria's Secret store.

Both girls were arrested. It's unclear whether either girl has a lawyer.

A woman who answered the phone at a possible home number for Rodriguez said she knew nothing about the matter. A woman who said she was Estevez's mother hung up after saying she hadn't spoken with her daughter since her arrest.
