This article is brought to you by: New York, NY: The New York Post is offering a $5,000 reward for information that leads to an arrest in the death of an infant who was allegedly born with severe hypothermia in New York City.
The baby was discovered by a man working for a company that transports baby equipment.
The company said that it took the baby into protective custody for several hours to allow the parents to warm him.
When police questioned the man who brought the baby to the company, he said he didn’t have the baby and told them to bring him back for the money.
The Post reports that the man was identified as 28-year-old Anthony C. Smith, and that his arrest warrant was for failure to register as a sex offender.
The baby’s death is the first in New Jersey since 2010, when a toddler was killed in a home in Elizabeth.
