On Friday January 22nd 2021, sheriffs deputies in the town of Perris in Western Riverside County found the body of an infant in a trash can on Goetz Road.

 

An autopsy determined the infant was still alive at birth.

 

After piecing together evidence for several months, investigators have now arrested the mother of the infant, 31 year old Brittany Peevyhouse, and charged her with murder.

 

California does have a Safely Surrendered Baby Law, which allows a person to leave an unwanted baby with an employee at a hospital or fire station within 3 days of birth.

 

There are no criminal charges as long as the baby has not been abused or neglected.
