Justice for baby Jane Doe

It’s been over 20 years since someone left a newborn baby in a garbage bag on a cold night in Jeanerette back in January 1994. The coroner confirmed the baby died of hypothermia, and still had the umbilical chord attached. Baby Jane Doe was laid to rest in the Beau Pre Cemetery. Her grave stone reads “Only God and her mother knew her name.”
Now genealogist Shera LaPoint, along with several others are working to bring justice to baby Jane Doe.
