Newborn baby found in trash to be buried in "Garden of Innocence"

Services tentaively planned for beginning of Sept.

BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - Burial services move forward for the baby girl found in a trash about a month ago in Oildale, said officials from the Union Cemetery. 

The newborn girl was found dumped in a trash near Beardsley Avenue on June 23. 

Officials said the coroner gave the family one month to claim her, but no one did. 

According to Dave Hepburn from the Union cemetery, a meeting was arranged this morning with the cemetery, the Kern County coroner and the "Garden of Innocence" organization to move forward with burial plans for the baby. 

The "Garden of Innocence" works alongside the cemetery to provide cremation, funeral services and a burial for abandoned babies. 

Services for the baby girl are tentatively planned for the first weekend of September.
