According to the King County Sheriff’s Office, a scientist with the Washington State Patrol Crime Lab was able to develop DNA profiles from evidence (towel, burp cloth) left at the scene where a deceased newborn baby was found near North Bend on February 12, 2014.
The DNA profiles share genetic information with the full-term, unidentified newborn girl who was later named Baby Kimball Doe for the Kimball Creek bridge she was discovered near.
So far, police have made no match made to the DNA profiles, but detectives hope this development will help them locate and identify the person or persons responsible for leaving the infant just off the busy roadway in the 39000 block of North Bend Way.
The Tears Foundation, S.A.V.E (Stop Abuse and Violence Everywhere), the Snoqualmie Valley Alliance Church and the Bonny Watson Funeral home worked with police and the King County Medical Examiner’s Office to provide funeral services for the baby on March 15, 2015.
A memorial still marks the spot where the baby was discovered on North Bend Way in February. Investigators would still like to hear from anyone who recognizes the towel and burp cloth found with the baby (pics below), with the hope of finally locating those who left her in the woods.
