Houston police are appealing to the public for assistance in locating a person of interest in connection with the death of an infant discovered at a gas station located at 13114 South Post Oak Road on April 2, around 4:25 a.m.
Surveillance footage shows the person of interest, believed to be the infant’s mother, and an unknown white Cadillac vehicle. Although she is sought for questioning, she has not been charged at this time.
The cause of the infant girl’s death is still under investigation by the Harris County Institute of Forensic Sciences.
Officers were initially called to the scene by Houston Fire Department paramedics who discovered the deceased infant at the gas station.
The evidence and further investigations suggest an unknown Hispanic female entered the gas station restroom and left approximately 15 minutes later. Several hours later, a customer attempted to use the restroom, discovered the infant, and called 9-1-1.
Paramedics arrived at the scene and tried to provide medical assistance, but it was established that the infant had been deceased for several hours before being found.
Anyone with information about the identity or whereabouts of the person of interest, the unknown white Cadillac vehicle, or any details about this case, is urged to contact the HPD Homicide Division at 713-308-3600 or to provide information anonymously to Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.
