Woman Leaves Newborn to Die in Dumpster – She’s Found 14 Years Later

An Indiana woman was arrested in California and charged with the homicide of a newborn infant found dead in Pennsylvania in 2007.

Police officers responded to a report of a deceased newborn infant found in a dumpster in the parking lot of a YMCA on N. Queen Street in Lancaster, Pa., on September 24, 2007, according to the Lancaster County District Attorney’s Office.

The infant was wrapped in a towel and plastic bags inside of a canvas bag.

The child, dubbed “Baby Mary Anne,” was between 35-38 weeks’ gestation, according the county coroner’s office, and the death was ruled a homicide due to complications of asphyxia.

Investigators determined the birth and the homicide allegedly occurred at a residence on the 200 block of Paradise Lane in Ronks, Pa.

Police said DNA evidence eventually was matched to the suspect, Tara Indrakosit Brazzle.

Lancaster Police investigators tracked down Brazzle to her Valparaiso, Ind., residence on Thursday, July 1, and interviewed her.

Brazzle reportedly admitted to giving birth to the child in Ronks, according to the Lancaster County D.A.’s Office. She reportedly told investigators she put the child in the dumpster days after the birth.

“Police did not immediately arrest Brazzle after the interview as the investigation was ongoing to determine whether anyone assisted Brazzle in the homicide or disposal of the baby,” according to the D.A.’s Office.

Brazzle reportedly boarded a plane to California the morning after she was interviewed by Pennsylvania investigators, who then obtained an arrest warrant for her.

Brazzle was arrested by San Jose Police when she got off the plane later on the day of July 2.

Brazzle, 44, was charged on July 2 with one count of criminal homicide. She was held in Santa Clara County without bond pending extradition to Pennsylvania.

Investigators have interviewed a man they believe to be the deceased child’s father, the Harrisburg Patriot-News reports.

  1. How do you murder your child and throw it away as trash? She deserves to go to jail for Years !!! She actually deserves the death penalty but we know that won’t happen in this world today.

  2. In today’s world Governor Northam would have just said it was ok because it was an afterbirth abortion. So sad.

  3. If this happened in 2007, she was 14 years old! She may have been frightened. She was barely more than a child at the time. It is a sad story, She may have been raped or seduced. We do not know all the details here.

    1. It said she was now 44 which would have made her 30 in 2007. A 30 year old knows right from wrong even a 14 year old would know that’s wrong.

  4. That child should not have been dumped like trash, I don’t care how old the mother was she should know right from wrong, she deserves to die just like her baby did.

  5. She deserves to be treated like ANY OTHER murderer out there!!! She made the choice to let that little baby DIE it a bag when she was 30 years old!!! How horriable of a death for a baby to be sufficated in a bag throw in a dumpster??? They need to stuff her in a big plastic bag and drop her into a dumpster out in the middle of NOWHERE!!! and leave her to die a slow death knowing the fear that child felt!!! Period!
